SOMERSET -- Gov. Chris Christie announced Wednesday he's against Republicans' latest effort in Washington to repeal the Affordable Care Act, saying it would cost New Jersey nearly $4 billion. "I've been lobbied significantly to be supportive of it and I can't be supportive of it," he said. The proposal would replace much of former President Barack Obama's law with block grants to states, giving them wide leeway on spending the money. It would also cut and reshape Medicaid.
TRENTON -- Newark native and basketball superstar Shaquille O'Neal backed Gov. Chris Christie in 2013. But he's splitting with the outgoing Republican in this year's election. O'Neal is slated to endorsed Democratic nominee Phil Murphy on Monday. Murphy, a former ambassador and Goldman Sachs executive, is running against Christie's pick for his successor, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, his second in command.
SOMERSET -- Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday a measure both Republicans and Democrats credit for helping to curb rising property taxes will expire at the end of the year unless Democratic gubernatorial nominee Phil Murphy throws his support behind it before Dec. 31. Without it, the governor predicted, your property taxes could soar again. The governor was referring to New Jersey's 2 percent cap on raises for police and firefighters who go to arbitration.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
