"Party man" nghĩa là gì?

'Party man' nghĩa là đảng viên trung thành/kiên trung (a member or adherent of a political party, especially : one characterized in cases of conflicting interests by strong loyalty to the party as an institution and to its principles and policies).

Ví dụ

My governor harbours (chứa chấp; nuôi dưỡng (ý nghĩ xấu...)) no ill-feeling (ác cảm, mối hận thù, nỗi oán hận) against the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee of the APC; he is a loyal party man.

It is true that a lot of people from the APC came to persuade (thuyết phục) him to shift camp but he wasted no time in telling them his mind, that he is a loyal party man, who will not leave the party simply because of his inability to secure the presidential ticket.

State Sen. Tony Avella has never been a party man. He’s run in primaries when his party favored someone else, and he was one of the eight lawmakers who joined the Independent Democratic Conference in the Senate. That let him secure funding for projects in Queens but also kept the Republicans in power even though they lacked a majority.
