Maine U.S. Sen. Susan Collins is among a group of senators that met through the weekend to put together a continuing resolution that would fund the federal government through Feb. 8. “Republicans as well as Democrats, all of whom are committed to getting to a solution - that is a powerful voting bloc in the Senate,” Collins says. Collins says she has hosted the 25 members of the Common Sense Coalition in her office to work on the details of the plan.
Maine’s two U.S. senators had a hand in the Common Sense Coalition, a bipartisan group that crafted the framework for ending the federal government shutdown. Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine led the effort to reconvene the coalition, which was instrumental in ending the federal government shutdown five years ago. She says members of both parties, and independent U.S. Sen. Angus King of Maine, met in her office to craft a resolution ending the current stalemate.
(AUGUSTA) - Because the partial shutdown of the federal government has started on a weekend, the impact on the state is minimal. That starts to grow on Monday. “This just should not have happened, “republican Sen. Susan Collins said in an interview with Maine Public Radio. “This is a failure to do what we are supposed to do.”Collins said she has reconvened the Common-Sense Coalition of moderate senators from both parties to try to craft a compromise.
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".
