Examples of Davis in a Sentence

  1. Robert Donovan:

    There are certainly any number of things that may divide the city of Milwaukee and its citizens, but this (referendum campaign) quite possibly could be the one issue that brings us together, this is not a one-man show, not a two-man show, with me and Alderman Davis.
