Examples of leaving in a Sentence

  1. Bob Gray:

    I'll just give you an example, if you're running and you walk doors, you kindly knock on a door and if you have a good conversation you ask if you can put a yard sign in the yard and sometimes that works. Well, they've got the Hillary (Clinton) voting list and they're just having large teams, many from out of state, walk through and they're just putting signs in every yard of a Hillary voter. And you wake up in the morning and you don't like the sign, maybe you throw it away. But the vast majority of the people are just leaving the sign up, which is creating a sense of energy that's unrealistic.

  4. Dan Caldwell:

  5. Lukman Otunuga:
