The race in Illinois’ 3rd District may not have the attention of the race to replace Luis Gutierrez, but a challenger to Rep. Dan Lipinski could change that. Marie Newman, a former marketing consultant and businesswoman, is viewed as a progressive challenger to Lipinski, whom is considered by many to be one of the most conservative Democrats in Washington. Newman has been gathering endorsements for the primary run against Lipinski, and it’s drawing national attention to their showdown.
Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner launched a feisty new attack on Democratic gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker Tuesday in an escalating battle of the billionaires. Both Rauner and Pritzker are considered billionaires. Although Rauner is said to be worth just under $1 billion, Pritzker, as a member of the Hyatt Hotel chain family, has an estimated $3.6 billion worth.
The hours are ticking down as candidates are scrambling to get their last-minute petitions together for the 2018 election cycle. The deadline, scheduled for 5 p.m. on Monday afternoon, has been made even more interesting with the late-breaking news that Rep. Luis Gutierrez was leaving Congress at the end of his term.
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".
