GOP frontrunner Donald Trump caused quite the stir Wednesday when he said abortions should be banned and women who get them should be punished (he later flip-flopped putting out a statement that the doctors who perform abortions, not the woman, should be punished.)

Want to know what’s happening in Ohio government and politics from Columbus to Washington, D.C.? The Columbus Dispatch has you covered.
It wasn't a good night for Ohio Democrats, who lost in all of the statewide elections (the second straight statewide election in which no D won an executive office.) But it was a really bad night for Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern who lost his Ohio House seat, Dispatch reporter Jim Siegel writes.
1. Jim Obergefell, the Cincinnati man whose case went to the U.S. Supreme Court that eventually legalized same-sex marriage, said "The Supreme Court said you were on the wrong side of history. "While saying he believes in the "traditional" form of marriage, Kasich said, "I don't want to have anyone feeling oppressed...the decision that has been made by the court has been made and as far as I'm concerned, we move on. I don't want anyone to be discriminated against."2.
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".
