Examples of Whitman in a Sentence

  1. Mike Lynch:

  3. Elliott Suthers:

    Whitman said in a statement. Although Whitman is one of the most prominent executives in Silicon Valley, with a career that spans startups and older businesses, she is not a household name in California, despite her run for governor, said Elliott Suthers, senior vice president with Grayling public communications and communications and media adviser for the McCain/Palin 2008 presidential campaign. To run against a relatively popular incumbent like [ Sen. Dianne Feinstein ] she ’d need to spend record amounts to get within striking distance, outside of Silicon Valley, she’s still a largely unknown quantity. Voters have a pretty short memory and her positions have undoubtedly shifted since 2010.
