So rather than a single word you'd prefer something like "fails to win the party nomination" or "gets defeated in the Republican primary"?
Yes I would. It would be one small victory in a sea of expressions such as:
Let's hack the culture.
We can leverage our position.
Let's capture the low hanging fruit.
This is in our wheelhouse.
We need to bookend this project.
Let's highlight the value add.
We cannot boil the ocean.
It's not use to shout at the rain.
We have synergistic competencies.
Things like this. Corporate speak is so awful. I like it on here in part because it provides relief from that stuff. That's why I shudder when I see "primaried".
