Examples of constituents in a Sentence

  1. Jim Manley:

    It really wouldn't be a particularly good use of their time, because they're busy in committee meetings and dealing with their staff and their constituents. the fact of the matter is, I'm not so sure how many members read bills. And I'm also not sure whether members should be spending that much time reading bills in the first place — that's why God created staff.

  2. Bernie Sanders:

    The answer is, sadly, there are elements of the Democratic Party, historically, that have worked too closely with the big money interests that have made the agreements that were really not in the best interest of the constituents who supported them.

  3. Tim Ryan:

    That's my concern -- the freshmen, they made promises to their constituents. That's how this all started.

  4. Walter Lippmann:

    In government offices which are sensitive to the vehemence and passion of mass sentiment public men have no sure tenure. They are in effect perpetual office seekers, always on trial for their political lives, always required to court their restless constituents. They are deprived of their independence. Democratic politicians rarely feel they can afford the luxury of telling the whole truth to the people. And since not telling it, though prudent, is uncomfortable, they find it easier if they themselves do not have to hear too often too much of the sour truth. The men under them who report and collect the news come to realize in their turn that it is safer to be wrong before it has become fashionable to be right.

  5. Representative Omar:

    Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes, my intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole. We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.
