Examples of dragging in a Sentence

  1. Kyosuke Suzuki:

  3. Sarah Binder:

    Trumps deep unpopularity limits lawmaking in another way, first, the Democratic base shows little interest in their representatives making deals with Trump that would give President Trump credit and enhance President Trump position for 2020. NAFTA 2.0 is a prime example. Really not clear whether Democrats will get the concessions their base groups demand or the extent to which the Speaker might be dragging her heels. Either way, that trade agreement is moving very slowly. And because the president is so unpopular nationally and with independents, theres limited pressure on Democrats to resolve problems.

  4. Jerry Nadler:

  5. Maurie Levine:

    It's the second court ruling saying we're entitled to this information - yet TDCJ keeps fighting tooth and nail, ... dragging out the appeals and refusing to comply while executions proceed in secret.
