Other questions about "Pushback"

Q: "There's been some strong pushback from Republicans on this, however."
This is a citation from Oxford Dictionary. I would like to ask if "however" is commonly used at the end of a sentence like this. I know "though" is common.
A: As above. "However" is a very formal word, so you would use it in a professional environment. "Though" is more casual. You can use However to start or end a sentence that contradicts the one before it. It's more common at the start than at the end. You would usually only use however at the end of a sentence when writing, rather than speaking. It's more of a stylistic choice than anything, both are correct.
