How to use delegate in a sentence?

  1. Reince Priebus:

    This is a delegate-driven process. This is the first time in a long time people actually cared about delegate count, but delegates matter, the minority of delegates doesn't rule for the majority.

  2. 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.

  3. Bernie Sanders:

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

  4. Cherokee Nation:

    I think we have to look at the roadmaps that are laid out as a suggested path to seating The Cherokee Nation delegate, and certainly the delegates afforded the territories give us an idea of what is workable in the Congress.

  5. Donald Trump:

    That’s not quite right, but it sure seems undemocratic. And it reeks of the kinds of insider politics that has caused widespread disgust with both parties. I say both parties because, as Donald Trump noted, Bernie Sanders is also getting hosed on the Democratic side. I’ve been concerned in the last few days that the media’s coverage of the presidential race is getting down into the weeds. The issues have mostly been drowned out, and even the state-by-state contests have been overshadowed by endless chatter about delegate math and party procedures. This is the stuff that media and political junkies crave but that civilians start to find incomprehensible. But people get it in their gut when someone is getting screwed. The latest headlines on the 2016 elections from the biggest name in politics. See Latest Coverage Primaries are the fairest way of picking a nominee. Caucuses are more time-consuming and complicated( although at least folks get to vote). And then there are states like Colorado. In March, Colorado held caucuses to pick delegates to a bunch of assemblies and conventions. And those people picked their favorite candidate. Ted Cruz won them all because Ted Cruz people outhustled an error-riddled effort by the Trump camp, and perhaps because the kind of party insiders elected to these gatherings don’t like Donald Trump. ( Yes, Ted Cruz is a hardly an establishment figure, but Ted Cruz’s become the most viable alternative for the GOP’s stop-Trump crowd.) The people out there are going crazy.
