Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Richard Winger:

    When you add them all up, practically every state is on record saying our sore loser law doesn't apply to presidential primaries.

  2. Richard Winger:

    There's precedents from just about every state that has a sore loser law that they don't apply to primaries, if I were Donald Trump and I knew I was going to be running outside the major presidential parties, I would not file for the Texas primary and South Dakota, and probably the Ohio one, although there's a flaw in the Ohio law.

  3. Michael Kang:

    The laws for presidential elections are sometimes different and I think always in the less restrictive direction, even some states with outright prohibitions on sore loser candidates for Congress or other offices have an exemption for presidential candidates. So applied to Trump's case, there's a lot less in the way of an independent run for a president than there would be for Congress or most other offices.
