CHICAGO — Two Republican hopefuls will compete on the March primary ballot to replace longtime Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Madigan, a Democrat, announced in September that she would not seek reelection in 2018 after 14 years in office. Republican party favorite Erika Harold has received $300,000 in donations from Gov. Bruce Rauner to help bolster her primary bid. "I have found her to be a person of great talent, integrity and good will," Rauner said.
CHICAGO -- With a cartoon on the cover and the articles inside, The Chicago Reader went there. The paper, without mincing words, examined race in Chicago politics. There was searing analysis of the J.B. Pritzker and Rod Blagojevich 2008 wiretap. The tape forced Pritzker, a candidate for governor, into damage control mode. "He insulted my whole community," Emil Jones, former Illinois Senate president, said. Legendary publisher of N’Digo, Hermene Hartman, said the cover didn’t bother her.
CHICAGO — On Wednesday evening the top three Democrats running for Illinois governor, J.B. Pritzker, Chris Kennedy and Daniel Biss, will meet for the final televised candidate forum before next week’s primary. One of the hot topics is sure to be a new report that claims Pritzker has a secret offshore bank account to avoid taxes.
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".
