WASHINGTON — Congress and the White House are making last-minute moves to fund the government, but if they can't strike a deal by midnight, the first government shutdown since 2013 begins. Many services across the country would screech to a halt, while workers who provide essential services wouldn't be paid. Small business owners and anyone trying to get a home loan could be hit hard if agencies experience a backlog.
“If anything, it might make my primary harder because a lot of Democrats do have a bad taste in their mouth with the name,” Johnson said. Johnson notified the Collin County Democratic Party that he was running for the seat after two candidates had already entered their names, chairman Mike Rawlins said. The party did not recruit him, and it does not endorse primary candidates. He’s up against three other Democrats — Adam Bell, who ran against the congressman in 2016, Lorie Burch and Medrick Yhap.
Democrats spoke out against Kacsmaryk and several other nominees Thursday who they view as controversial. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee, said Kacsmaryk has repeatedly opposed civil rights protections for gay and transgender people. Kacsmaryk is the second Trump court pick who spent part of his career at First Liberty, a conservative law firm focused on bringing forward religious liberty cases.
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".
