How to use raising in a sentence?

  1. Dan Newman:

    She's viewed as thorough, thoughtful, and as close to non-partisan on the issue of national security as is possible in today's politically polarized environment, if it was a different Democrat, it would be easier for some to be dismissive of the questions she's raising, but she's built significant credibility as a trusted voice on national security, so she has to be taken seriously. She's raising two critical issues which will define our debate about torture in the coming months: does it make us safer, and is it something we accept as consistent with our nation's moral code?

  2. Jonas Nay:

    I guess the youth back then had really the impression that they could change something, that they had a voice, and ... it's coming back to that right now in the youth because of social media networks and analysts that are reacting on comments, on movements, on the internet and stuff. So ... people of my age are raising their voices again.

  3. Bernie Sanders:

  4. Chris Vance:

    Putting more money into education without raising taxes is music to the ears of suburban voters.

  5. Russian President Vladimir Putin:

    There’s no need to distract the public’s attention from the essence of the problem by raising some minor issues connected with the search for who did it, but I want to tell you again, I don’t know anything about it, and on a state level Russia has never done this.
