How to use audacious in a sentence?

  1. Sarah Riggs Amico:

    Any candidate claiming victory based on partial results is dishonoring the voices of hundreds of thousands of voters who, in good faith, turned in absentee ballots or stood in long lines late into the night in the pouring rain to make their voices heard, dismissing or ignoring valid ballots from these voters is an audacious affront to the entire voting rights movement and takes a page straight from the voter suppression playbook championed by Republicans like( Governor) Brian Kemp and State Brad Raffensperger.

  2. Randy Mastro:

    This is a racketeering scheme so audacious it would make the mob blush.

  3. Eliot Engel:

    There's a reason the Obama administration and The Trump administration, at least before this point, never made such audacious legal claims. The assertion that Congress has authorized the executive branch to use force against Iran is unsound. A bipartisan majority of both houses of Congress have rejected that view in just the past few weeks through congressional findings, the administration's position is dangerous. It holds Iran directly responsible for abuses committed by armed groups under a new-fangled theory that United States would not want to see applied to our support for armed forces including the Saudi bombing campaign in Yemen and the Syrian Kurdish forces' treatment of detainees.

  4. Katie Baldwin:

    When I look now at the starting of the farm, it seems really audacious, but in that environment, in 2008, everybody had lost their jobs and there weren't jobs - so it didn't feel that weird to start something.

  5. Ted Cruz:

    With one week to go in our first fund-raising quarter, we set a goal that we wanted to raise $1 million in a week. Now, I thought that was a pretty audacious goal, well, I'm sorry to tell you we failed in that goal. We didn't raise a million dollars in a week. We raised a million dollars in one day.
