In Philadelphia today at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, an emotionally overwhelming moment for Bernie Sanders as Democrats Abroad cast their votes for the party's 2016 presidential nominee.
The Senator from Vermont, who abandoned his own bid for President and is endorsing Hillary Clinton, appeared to weep as his brother Larry Sanders -- a UK resident -- announced the votes for Democrats Abroad.
Larry Sanders invoked their deceased mom and dad, and spoke with great intensity and passion as he cast his vote, and those of other Dems living overseas, for his brother Bernie Sanders.
From ABC News:
"I want to bring before this convention the names of our parents Eli Sanders and Dorothy Sanders," Larry Sanders said. "They did not have easy lives and they died young." Eli died in 1962, and Dorothy died in 1960. Larry Sanders continued, "They would be immensely proud of their son’s accomplishments. They loved him."
