How to use stronghold in a sentence?

  1. Pearson Cross:

    This election has not been about Bill Cassidy, this election has been about the negative press that the President has gotten and the ability of Bill Cassidy to tie Barack Obama and( Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid to Mary Landrieu. In this final act Saturday, the Louisiana race will test the limits of the vaunted Mary Landrieu turnout operation, particularly in Orleans Parish, which has been the family stronghold for generations. After Hurricane Katrina, Mary Landrieu operatives were vigilant about maintaining their voter data — scrubbing their voter files to make sure addresses and phone numbers were up to date after each purge of voters who had moved out of state by the Secretary of State's office. Landrieu's campaign also partnered with the Democratic Party to register scores of new voters across the state this year, focusing particularly on ushering new black voters into the party. In Saturday's election, it is hard to underestimate the importance of Landrieu's turnout operation in Orleans Parish, which encompasses the city of New Orleans.

    Together you are the tip of the spear, the edge of the blade and the front of the shield defending and protecting our great country, you know there is no mission our pilots can't handle.

You know that together there is nothing Americans can't do. Absolutely nothing.
