Rep. Tom MacArthur, alone among New Jersey Republicans, has embraced Donald Trump with a full bear hug. Maybe he thought that would work out for him politically, but it's shaping up to be a disaster. He's toast as a statewide candidate in Blue Jersey, where Republicans had hoped he might rise to the U.S. Senate or governor's mansion. And now he has fresh reason to worry that he could even lose his seat in Congress.
Nearly three decades have passed since Gov. Jim Florio raised taxes across the board, provoking a primal scream from voters that gave Republicans control of the state government for nearly a decade. Is that about to happen again? Gov. Phil Murphy shook off that trauma this week and proposed a $1.5 billion tax hike, the biggest tax hike since Florio's day. Democratic leaders ran for cover, showing no support. For now, they are going to let Murphy sink or swim all by himself.
Gov. Phil Murphy will present his budget today, setting off a three-month scramble that will tell us a great deal about where New Jersey is headed in the post-Christie era. We know Murphy intends to raise taxes on the rich and increase spending on a slew of progressive programs. What we don't know is how he can make the math work, given the fiscal mess he inherited. The irony is this: Murphy can protect his progressive program only if he finds smart places to cut spending as well.
@johnsb01@GovMurphy@NJEA Then why did he fire Paula white, unquestionably qualifies black woman? Why will not one of his people answer: did the Njea call and object during the three hours she had the job?
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".
