Examples of entrenched in a Sentence

  1. Bill Weld:

    Ours is a nation built on courage, resilience, and independence. In these times of great political strife, when both major parties are entrenched in their' win at all cost' battles, the voices of the American people are being ignored and our nation is suffering, it is time for patriotic men and women across our great nation to stand and plant a flag. It is time to return to the principles of Lincoln -- equality, dignity, and opportunity for all. There is no greater cause on earth than to preserve what truly makes America great. I am ready to lead that fight.

  2. Brad Dayspring:

    Governor Scott Walker is the only candidate who has fought for big, bold reforms to our biggest challenges and actually won those fights, this is the first phase of telling his story -- a conservative governor from a blue state who has challenged the status quo, fought the entrenched special interests, and enacted conservative reforms to reform government from the bottom up -- to voters in early states who are looking for a fighter who does more than make promises.

Howman, who often represented athletes in New Zealand who could not afford his services and paid in cricket bats and All-Blacks rugby jerseys, has been there through all the highs and lows. When WADA opened in 2003, drugs in sport had already become a worldwide epidemic and fair play was merely a quaint idea. Doping was firmly entrenched in the sporting culture, largely tolerated, if not tacitly accepted, by those who competed in everything from cycling's Tour de France to baseball's World Series. With no meaningful out-of-competition testing, a mish-mash of sanctions and banned substance lists, entrepreneurs such as BALCO mastermind Victor Conte operated in near impunity, pushing out designer steroids faster than tests could be developed to detect them. From a small headquarters in Montreal, WADA has grown into a global agency with four regional offices and 35 laboratories, although four are currently under suspension.

  5. Chris Williamson:

    Companies are citing greater uncertainty about the outlook, especially in export markets, leading to some scaling back of expansion plans and a greater reluctance for customers to place orders compared to earlier in the year, which suggests a slowdown could become more entrenched unless demand revives.
