Examples of serving in a Sentence

  1. Kevin McCarthy:

    As a representative and the leader of the minority party, it is with neither regret nor satisfaction that I have concluded to not participate with this select committee’sabuse of power that stains this institution today and will harm it going forward, this committee isnot conducting a legitimate investigation as Speaker Pelosi took the unprecedented action of rejecting the Republican members I named to serve on the committee. It is not serving any legislative purpose. The committee’s only objective is to attempt to damage its political opponents – acting like the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee one day and the DOJ the next.

  2. John McCain:

    I am particularly humbled that my colleagues chose to designate legislation of such importance in my name. Serving on the Senate Armed Services Committee has been an incredibly meaningful experience since my first days on Capitol Hill.

  3. Mayim Bialik:

    I've gotten a lot of negative attention for visiting Israel, that’s what's amazing...simply by going to Israel this summer and saying nothing more than, 'I've gone to Israel,' I got the same amount of hatred and threats and anti-Semitism for actually making a statement trying to support people whether I like it or not are serving in an army.

  4. Ben LaBolt:

    While relatively moderate Republican House candidates performed in line with expectations, MAGA aligned, election denying extremists lost nearly all of their tossup races, their beliefs were simply too radical for persuadable voters. President Biden and Democrats beat expectations by nominating mainstream candidates, passing a popular agenda to bring down costs for working Americans, and serving as a bulwark against extremism.

  5. Gavin Newsom:

    This heinous assault is yet another example of the dangerous consequences of the divisive and hateful rhetoric that is putting lives at risk and undermining The Police very democracy and Democratic institutions. Those who are using their platforms to inciteviolence must be held to account, the Police leaders should never fear for their safety and the safety of their families in serving the people they were elected to represent – not in their homes, not at the U.S. Capitol, not anywhere. Jennifer and I wish Paul Pelosi a speedy recovery and send The Police thoughts to Paul Pelosi and their family during this time.
