ASPEN, Colo. -- Gov. Chris Christie on Monday is scheduled to attend a Republican Governors Association event for perhaps the last time while in office. He may cross paths with Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, who will be in town to gather support -- and money -- for her campaign for governor. And with the governor and lieutenant governor both away, that means New Jersey's top Democrat, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, will be in charge for a day or two.
The beginning of July was one for the history books in the world of New Jersey politics. The state government shut down for only the second time in the state's history and Gov. Chris Christie made international headlines after NJ Advance Media snapped photos of him sitting on the beach with his family and others that was closed to the rest of the public. Worried the summer months, which are usually pretty quiet in Trenton after lawmakers pass a state budget, will be dull?
NORTH BRUNSWICK a With New Jersey's unemployment rate below the national average and outpacing its neighboring states, Gov. Chris Christie pressed reporters Thursday to promote the good news. During an event in North Brunswick to highlight New Jersey's economic growth under his tenure, Christie boasted about the state's turnaround since he was elected on the heels of the Great Recession.
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".
