Bernie Sanders Brought To Tears By Brother’s Vote At Dem Convention


One of the night’s most dramatic moments at DNC Day 2 came when Larry Sanders, a delegate for Democrats Abroad, cast a vote for his kid brother, Sen. Bernie Sanders, during the roll-call vote that clinched the nomination for Hillary Clinton.

Larry Sanders told the hall before before casting his vote: “I want to read, before this convention, the names of our parents: Eli Sanders and Dorothy Glassberg Sanders. They did not have easy lives and they died young. They would be immensely proud of their son and his accomplishments. They loved him.”

Check out the speech, which brought Bernie Sanders to tears, above.
