Examples of constituency in a Sentence

  1. James Carville:

    The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.

  2. David Bernstein:

    Bogren was a good sacrificial lamb for this campaign, because his nomination was the product of a compromise with the Democrats, so he didn't have a Republican senator or constituency to fight for him, it's a shame, though, that Josh Hawley demagogued the issue, not only attacking Bogren for vigorously representing a client, but for wildly misrepresenting the arguments Bogren made on behalf of his client to falsely make him look like an anti-Catholic bigot.

  3. Thomas Dang:

    My parents are just very excited and very happy that I am going to be able to represent the constituency.

  4. Fawaz Gerges:

So they want to really minimize the risks.

  5. Barack Obama:

    I just heard the news as I was coming out of the meeting here so it took me by surprise, and I took the time prior to this press conference to call John directly, john Boehner is a good man -- he is a patriot, he cares deeply about the House, an institution for which he has served for a long time, he cares about his constituency and he cares about America.
