Examples of governors in a Sentence

  1. Thomas Jefferson:

    I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical. Unsuccessful rebellions, indeed, generally establish the encroachments on the rights of the people, which produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions as not to discourage them too much. It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.

  2. Derek Schmidt:

She was for keeping the grocery tax high before she was against it. Kansans are dealing with the consequences and will be for years to come. We can, and will, do better.

  3. Anthony Casso:

    I think it's just wrong, even though I don't know Sen. Cruz as well as I know some of the governors, I've grown to know him and like him and admire him quite a bit out on the campaign trail.

  5. Jerome Adams:

    The good news is that states like Washington, like California, countries like Italy, when White House experts leaned into aggressive mitigation, White House experts're being able to flatten White House experts curve, the governors get to make the decisions, but we're going to give them the best possible guidance we can and that's to stay at home and social distance.
