The envelope budgeting method is making a comeback.
Those defeats signaled just how difficult a Democratic comeback in the state would be.

a quick reply to a question or remark (especially a witty or critical one)
A comeback is a quick, witty reply. “Your mama” is a lame comeback but a popular one. It’s also a return to prominence after a break, like an athlete who retires and then makes a comeback by returning to the sport.
If someone insults you, and you say something back that turns the insult around, that’s a comeback. Nice job. Another comeback is when someone — especially in entertainment or sports — comes back after being gone. If a popular singer leaves music for a few years and then returns with a hit song, that’s a comeback. In the song “Mama Said Knock You Out,” LL Cool J starts by saying, “Don’t call it a comeback, I been here for years!”
如果有人侮辱你，而你反驳了侮辱的话，那就是卷土重来。不错的工作。另一种回归是某人——尤其是在娱乐或体育领域——在离开后回归。如果一位流行歌手离开音乐界几年，然后带着一首热门歌曲回归，那就是卷土重来。在歌曲“Mama Said Knock You Out”中，LL Cool J 开头说道，“不要称之为复出，我已经在这里多年了！”
As for Kelton, I expect him to have a snotty comeback, but instead he just stands there, genuinely thrown by my comment.

Qendrim didn’t have a comeback for that one—he was too small to do much harm to anyone, and he knew that if he tried anything rough, Luma would bench him.
Qendrim 没有因为那个而卷土重来——他太小了，不能对任何人造成太大伤害，而且他知道如果他尝试任何粗暴的行为，Luma 就会让他坐板凳。

Havana was his comeback in the world spotlight, and a poor showing would only have deepened Bobby’s disillusionment with himself, probably permanently.
