Examples of Republican in a Sentence

  1. Nate Cohn:

    In recent decades, the Republicans have done really well in this process. They have controlled the redistricting process in more states than Democrats, and they’ve used that power to draw more Republican-leaning districts than Democrats.

  2. Kamala Harris:

  3. Rina Shah:

  4. Donald Trump:

    Look, we have expanded the Republican Party, they came from the Democratic Party, or the Democrat Party, and they're Democrats and they're long-time Democrats and they were never going to switch and they all switched. And they were independents.

  5. Donald Trump:

    Based on the fact that the Democratic nominating process is totally rigged and Crooked Hillary Clinton and Deborah Wasserman Schultz will not allow Bernie Sanders to win, and now that I am the presumptive Republican nominee, it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second place finisher, likewise, the networks want to make a killing on these events and are not proving to be too generous to charitable causes, in this case, women's health issues. Therefore, as much as I want to debate Bernie Sanders -- and it would be an easy payday -- I will wait to debate the first place finisher in the Democratic Party, probably Crooked Hillary Clinton, or whoever it may be.
