Can I use compound sentences and relative clauses in complex sentence?

Although Mr. McConnell waited until weeks after Mr. Biden was declared the winner to recognize the outcome, his actions were a clear bid by the majority leader, who is the most powerful Republican in Congress, to put an end to his party’s attempts to sow doubt about the election. (source)

  • I don't know if you can, but it's definitely hard to parse. – Andrew Tobilko Dec 18 '20 at 20:25
  • Hi, welcome to ELL! Please remember to include your source in the question. I have done that for you this time. For future reference, please always tell us where you found your sentence. Also, I am not quite clear on what you are asking here. What exactly are you having trouble with in this passage? – Eddie Kal Dec 18 '20 at 20:51
  • Could I write transition sentence in first dependent clauses or subordinating clauses? "after Mr.Biden was Declared the winner to recognise this outcome" Could I write relative clauses like" who is the most powerful Republican in Congress"? – John Dec 19 '20 at 10:29
