How to use overly in a sentence?

  1. Faith Soloway:

  3. Giancarlo Sopo:

Also, I think during that same time, it would be fair to say that the Democratic Party's overly educated or miseducated, depending how you look at it, you know, elites have taken over the party, and it's difficult to find groups that are more different than a woke White Democrat and your average Hispanic, they're economically different. The social and cultural values are very different. Your average Hispanic tends to be far more religious and traditional in their cultural views than your average Democrat. So, I think if you understand the cultural transformation that we've seen on the Democrats, where they've become a lot more radicalized, and at the same time Hispanics… don’t just believe in the American dream. We personify it.

  4. Joni Ernst:

  5. Faith Soloway:

    Making it into a musical in some ways rescued it from being overly serious, we had to come back to joy. We had to find out way back to joy and a musical allowed us to do that.
