Examples of sen in a Sentence

  1. John McCain:

    With Sen. Lindsey Graham's announcement, Republicans lost our most qualified, thoughtful, fearless and honest presidential candidate, not to mention the candidate with the best (and it seemed sometimes the only) sense of humor, as sorry as I am to see Lindsey's candidacy end, I understand his reasons, and I'm as proud of him as I've ever been for his exemplary service to our party and our country.

  2. John Melendez:

    All Jared Kushner and Donald Trump had to ask me is what party affiliation is Sen. Menendez, or what state is he a senator of, and I would not have known. But Jared Kushner and Donald Trump didn't ask me any of this.

Shoot, not just Johnson’s age — [Abraham] Lincoln’s age. Good-government reforms have hamstrung an administration, which I think is for the most part for the best. Obama did not spend much time speaking about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign. But he traced the billionaire's political rise back to Sarah Palin’s selection as Sen. John McCain’s presidential running mate in 2008.

  5. Lincoln Chafee:

    There's no doubt that Sen. Warren's absolutely right about what's happening to the middle class, she's just been a prophet about this for a number of years.
