How to use successor in a sentence?

  1. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio:

    As a Roman Catholic, he's the head of the Church, he's the successor of Peter -- is what I believe -- and I have tremendous respect and admiration for him, i haven't seen his statement, but I'm an elected official in the United States of America in the federal government, and our number one obligation is to keep people safe and our immigration system is a part of that.

  2. Milan Kundera:

    High culture is nothing but a child of that European perversion called history, the obsession we have with going forward, with considering the sequence of generations a relay race in which everyone surpasses his predecessor, only to be surpassed by his successor. Without this relay race called history there would be no European art and what characterizes it: a longing for originality, a longing for change. Robespierre, Napoleon, Beethoven, Stalin, Picasso, they're all runners in the relay race, they all belong to the same stadium.

  3. Steve Vladeck:

    The court's summary rulings today in a pair of redistricting cases from North Carolina seem to drive home that the justices are not in a hurry to reconsider claims of partisan gerrymandering after sidestepping two major cases earlier this term, but that they will continue to pay close attention to claims that district lines were drawn due to race-based considerations, of course, whether Justice( Anthony) Kennedy's successor will tip the scales in favor or against these claims more categorically remains to be seen, so today's decisions are perhaps best understood as putting things into a holding pattern.

  4. Mullah Mohammad Omar:

    When Mullah Omar was alive, he maintained a public distance from al Qaeda that his successor Mullah Mansour has not, i think this is in part because Mansour lacks the legitimacy of Omar.

  5. The President:

    I'm absolutely convinced that we will have a Democratic successor as president, i believe we will take back the United States Senate. I think we will make real progress with respect to the House. But it depends on people feeling as if that can happen, and being engaged and working just as hard and just as full of hope as they did in 2008. And that's going to depend on me, but it's also going to depend on you. It's going to depend on each of us.
