It was all going so well Wednesday night, with moderator Chris Wallace keeping the audience relatively quiet and the candidates focused on issues - the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade, immigration and gun control.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Is the country more divided than it was at the beginning of the political season? Will it ever heal? When Donald Trump last visited Charlotte way back in August, it was a subdued affair, as Trump rallies go - some signs, the candidate center stage, only a few halfhearted chants of "lock her up."
Michelle Obama is a powerful voice to have in your corner. She is a singular presence who is - at the same time - Everywoman. But if you get on her bad side, if you demonstrate with word and deed that you disrespect the people and things she cares about, watch out.In Manchester, New Hampshire, on Thursday, a campaign appearance for Hillary Clinton became much more.
Jason Collins, the former NBA player who made history in 2013 as "the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport," as he said in a Sports Illustrated cover story, has continued to speak out.
Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C.: "... as the proud father of two daughters and the husband to the greatest lady I've ever met, it would be hypocritical of me to ignore these remarks." Rep. Jason E. Chaffetz, R-Utah: "My wife and I, we have a 15-year-old daughter, and if I can't look her in the eye and tell her these things, I can't endorse this person."
On careful review of the statements of Republican leaders - who have finally denounced Donald Trump after his stomach-turning and graphic comments about women came to light in a just-released 2005 video - a particular theme emerges.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: "As the father of three daughters, I strongly believe that Trump needs to apologize directly to women and girls everywhere, and take full responsibility for the utter lack of respect for women shown in his comments on that tape."
When one reviews the charges and countercharges that have characterized the 2016 presidential election campaign, one topic that's been left on the fringes is faith. That changed on Tuesday night as two candidates whose faith is central to their political philosophies took to the debate stage.
Donald Trump went into his first one-on-one presidential debate with his base solidly behind him. But one would assume he also wanted to continue his outreach to minority and female voters. He does, after all, need to win the approval of half of the population, one that is rapidly becoming more diverse.
Dear Rep. Robert Pittenger: You may be the elected U.S. congressman from the district of North Carolina that runs through my neighborhood; but you don't represent me.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Lara Trump, presidential candidate Donald Trump's daughter-in-law, is just a "Carolina girl," from Wilmington, she wants you to know, with "good Southern values." And Donald Trump, "the man I know him to be," is "a very humble, soft-spoken, funny guy," with a weakness for McDonald's.
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
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".
