Rep. Martha McSally’s pending U.S. Senate campaign has become the year’s worst-kept political secret. First, she told her House colleagues (not the best group of secret-keepers) that she plans to run for the Senate. That was followed by McSally’s sudden interest in being photographed with President Donald Trump and members of his inner circle. Trump’s support is seen as key to victory in Republican primaries.
President Donald Trump answered Sen. Jeff Flake's criticism of his leadership and harsh tone in a series of early morning tweets Wednesday, saying the Arizona senator's unpopularity forced him to exit his 2018 race for re-election. "The reason Flake and (Sen. Bob) Corker dropped out of the Senate race is very simple, they had zero chance of being elected. Now act so hurt & wounded!" Trump said in a tweet that included a dig at the Tennessee Republican senator.
President Donald Trump set up a showdown with Senate Democrats during his Tuesday speech in Phoenix, threatening to shut down the government unless Congress begins funding construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall. "We are building a wall on the southern border, which is absolutely necessary," he said, repeating a key campaign promise. "Now, the obstructionist Democrats would like us not to do it. But believe me, if we have to close down our government, we're building that wall."
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".
