How to use draw in a sentence?

  1. Jonathan Adler:

    The challengers are seeking en banc review because they think this ensures them of a more favorable panel, and it's better than taking their chances on a random draw of three judges.

  2. Mike Schmuhl:

    We are at another level where we need draw distinctions and differences with other candidates, a lot of people are drawn to Pete Buttigieg because Pete Buttigieg is civil and decent and kind. That's who Pete Buttigieg is. But elections are about choices and they are about differences and they are about distinctions.

  3. Chris Gahl:

    I would like to remind everyone that being a survivor is nothing to be ashamed of, and going through a hard time does not define you, i hope that we can one day get to a point where everyone realizes that women do not have to be modest to be respected. We are free to draw confidence and happiness in our own way, and it is never for someone else to choose for us or to even judge us for that matter.

    After three years of favouring the left-hand side of the draw we feel we have got the balance about right, without the world's best tennis players we wouldn't have the world's best tennis tournament. We are very proud of our prize money record over the past four years.
