TRENTON --Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver, the Lieutenant Gov-elect, signaled Tuesday she plans to have more influence in day-to-day governing than her predecessor had in the last eight years. In response to a question from NJTV's David Cruz about whether her relationship with Gov.-elect Phil Murphy would be more of a "partnership," as compared to that between Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and Gov. Chris Christie, she said yes. Oliver, D-Essex, will be the state's second-ever lieutenant governor.
MORRIS PLAINS -- Love him or hate him. If you're one of the hundreds of thousands of people a year who use the public park located minutes from his home, you'll likely get to it this time next year by way of "Governor Chris Christie Drive." Gov. Chris Christie joined local officials here Monday to break ground on what will be a $1.5 million, third-of-a mile stretch of road meant to be a main access point to Central Park of Morris County.
1. Christie thinks there's more to BridgegateThe George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal shattered Christie's popularity in the state and delivered a big blow to his White House ambitions. Christie has never been directly tied to the scandal and he adamantly denies any involvement. The admitted mastermind of the scandal, David Wildstein, told jurors it was a political revenge scheme against the mayor of Fort Lee for not endorsing Christie's re-election bid.
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".
