The 87th Gridiron political comedy show will be held April 23 at the Harrisburg Hilton. For the price of two tickets, you and a guest receive a sit-down dinner and comedy desserts performed by reporters and politicians. The event is off the record — no videotaping, no audio recording, no tweeting, etc — to ensure everyone can laugh without looking over their shoulders at a tracker or opponent. We have never had anyone break this rule. Don’t be the first!
The Pennsylvania Constitution doesn’t permit candidates for governor and lieutenant governor from running on the same primary election ticket. That hasn’t stopped some Republicans from trying to handpick their running mates anyway. But Paul Mango’s personal selection process may have been harder than he thought. On Tuesday, Mango announced his preferred candidate for lieutenant governor: Diana Irey Vaughan, a Washington County commissioner since 1996.
Pennsylvania’s ongoing legal fight over the shapes and locations of its 18 congressional districts continues to alter the election landscape. On Tuesday, Ryan Mackenzie, a candidate for the Lehigh Valley area’s 15th congressional seat, announced he would also run for re-election to his state House seat due to the state Supreme Court ruling that ordered a new map for the May 15 primary election.
@BillKristol Did the Trump White House and FoxNews just publicly declare their allegiance to Russia with this comment from a White House flak "There are two groups that have created chaos more than the Russians and that’s the Democrats and the mainstream media.”
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".
