How to use rush in a sentence?

  1. Robert Menendez:

    There is no reason to rush this to the floor unless you are worried about political points.

  2. Gu Meng:

    Downstream demand remains very strong at this moment as construction sites rush to work as much as they can before rainy season starts in June.

  3. State John Kerry:

    The talks remain tough, and just as I have said consistently, we're not going to rush to an agreement for the sake of an agreement, and we're not going to sign an agreement that we don't believe gets the job done.

  4. Joan Winmill Brown:

    Christmas The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given--when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.

  5. Hillary Clinton:

    It’s one of the reasons that I think a lot of Americans are just fed up with the whole political process. Because, in a democracy you have to have at least enough trust to be able to work with each other and solve difficult problems, when the Republicans refuse to give a distinguished judge appointed by President Obama even the courtesy of meetings, let alone a hearing, that sent such a terrible message. Now, what they’ve done in this case is to hold back information, they have not provided all the information, which was always made available for other nominees, and they’re trying to rush this through to the detriment of the American public, who deserves to have answers to whatever charges might be presented.
