WASHINGTON -- With Sen. John McCain battling brain cancer -- and blocking a last ditch GOP effort to repeal Obamacare -- Texas congressman Louie Gohmert urged Arizona voters to toss him from office right away through a recall election. That, Gohmert said Monday, would let McCain deal with his illness and clear a key political obstacle for those seeking to deliver on a long standing Republican promise to overturn the Affordable Care Act. “I think that Arizona can help him and us.
Mateer, a conservative and advocate for religious liberty, also did not respond to multiple inquiries. On Wednesday, Committee Vice Chair Raul Gonzalez said he was not aware of Mateer's comments during the panel's review, but added that it would not have derailed his recommendation. "I trust Jeff's judgment that he would make a decision not on personal views but on the facts and the law of the case before him," Gonzalez, a former Democratic justice on the Texas Supreme Court.
WASHINGTON -- Jeff Mateer, a top official in Texas' attorney general's office and one of President Donald Trump's picks for a federal judge position in Texas, once described transgender children as evidence of "Satan's plan" in his 2015 remarks for First Liberty Institute. In a pair of 2015 speeches, first reported by CNN on Wednesday, Mateer complained that states were banning conversion therapy and said same-sex marriage would lead to polygamy and bestiality.
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".
