How to use delegate in a sentence?

  1. Victor Matheson:

    There are hugely militarized zones where nobody goes unless you are a reporter or a delegate, it keeps the regulars away.

  2. Matt Micheli:

    It's a system that encourages people to be engaged and to be involved, it works. Thus far, the system has favored Cruz, who netted nine pledged delegates at Wyoming’s county conventions last month. Donald Trump gained only one. Marco Rubio, still in the race at the time, also secured a delegate. Another was elected unpledged. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, banking on a brokered convention, is not expected to fare well in Wyoming. But John Kasich campaign will still be meeting with delegates in hopes they can convince them to eventually vote for John Kasich beyond a first ballot in Cleveland.

  3. Angie Maxwell:

    If it's Cruz wins, Cruz wins, Cruz wins, that's a big momentum. It will look and sound powerful, despite the delegate numbers, Cruz is clearly making it his strategy to win in the South, and it's smart from a perception standpoint, in terms of delegate counts, it doesn't do as much as it would have done had they been winner take all primaries, but the headlines could be a game-changer.

  4. Bernie Sanders:

    We intend to fight for every vote and every delegate remaining.

  5. Jeff Weaver:

    What it tells us is that Bernie has financial staying power, we have the financial wherewithal that will allow for a major campaign through Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada and beyond in state-by-state, delegate-by-delegate contests for the Democratic Party nomination.
