How to use vigorous in a sentence?

  1. Bernie Sanders:

    To suggest we don't fight this out to the end would be, I think, a very bad mistake. People want to become engaged in the political process by having vigorous primary and caucus process.

High voter turnout, the Democratic candidate will win.
