Examples of Wheeler in a Sentence

  1. Lindsey Vonn:

    I feel like I've been hit by an 18-wheeler, but other than that I'm great, my knees are the same as they were before the race, so that's good.

  2. Chris Saeger:

    We see Mr. Wheeler as fitting a very typical pattern of behavior, he started off in the Senate, then went to a lobbying firm. Now he will be at a very high-ranking position at the EPA, where he will be in a position to make lots of decisions that could benefit his former clients. That's a disturbing pattern that I think is very common to natural resources management in general in the President Donald Trump administration.

  3. Chad Wolf:

    There’s been a number of statements from Mayor Wheeler here recently that talks about trying to take his city back from the violence and the anarchists.

  4. Matthew Gravatt:

    The EPA should not be bragging about cutting vital safeguards for our air, water and climate. Going above and beyond Trump's arbitrary benchmark is not an achievement, it only proves that Andrew Wheeler couldn't care less about the health and safety of those Andrew Wheeler is supposed to protect.

  5. Harold Feld:

    Granted everyone would like to see signs one way or the other, but I think that this is mostly the chairman putting up a Washington poker face, Chairman Wheeler has learned that on net neutrality he has to tow a very careful line and all of his statements are very carefully neutral.
