How to use replace in a sentence?

    To my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, please replace President Trump’s name with your own name in a small sample of things Mr. Strzok has said, envision how you would feel if you found out that the chief agent investigating you as a Member of Congress was making these comments: 'F Trump,' 'Trump is a disaster,' 'Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support' – or, perhaps most alarmingly and revealingly, 'We’ll stop it' – referring directly to Mr. Trump’s candidacy for President.

  5. Tim Albrecht:

    You cannot overstate the importance of having a Joni Scotter in every county, if not as many precincts as you can find somebody. The Joni Scotters of the world are the lifeblood of the Iowa caucus organization. Iowa is special because you can't simply come here, purchase a bunch of TV ads, and expect that to help you win alone. Now certainly, that's a part, but there's nothing that can replace organization. Anybody in this state will tell you if you have the choice between TV ads only or organization only, they would take organization without question. There is no way to measure the value of a solid organization working in Iowa's 99 counties.
