Vice President Pence praised Sen. Dean Heller (R) and state Attorney General Adam Laxalt (R) at an event in Las Vegas on Thursday. Pence: “I want to thank Senator Dean Heller for all he does for the men and women who wear the uniform here in the Silver State. He is a tireless advocate for Nellis Air Force Base and our armed forces, and we are all grateful for your outstanding leadership in our national defense.
Clinton adviser James Carville made the case for the centrality of the economy in politics more memorably than anyone before him when he quipped that “the economy, stupid” would be the defining issue against George H.W. Bush in the 1992 election. Economists and political scientists produce election models relying heavily on economic performance to predict future outcomes. By this standard alone, these should be heady times for the Trump administration.
Minnesota Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, appointed Wednesday to succeed resigning Sen. Al Franken, earned quick support from a couple of potential Democratic primary foes after confirming she will run in the special election next year to finish out the term. Recent appointed senators have had mixed levels of competition in their first primaries, with some clearing the field, such as Tim Scott of South Carolina and Dean Heller of Nevada, while others were thrown into immediate danger.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
