Larry Sanders Calls Votes For His Brother In A Tearful Moment

During the Democrat's abroad roll call of the DNC Larry Sanders, brother of Bernie, gave an impassioned speech sparking tears from the Senator from Vermont.

A touching moment occurred today during the roll call vote at the Democratic Convention when Larry Sanders, brother of Bernie, was given the microphone to deliver their votes to Bernie Sanders.

"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," an emotional big brother read before having to pause for loud cheers before finishing with, "they loved the New Deal of Franklin Roosevelt and would be especially proud that Bernard is renewing that vision. It is with enormous pride that I cast my vote for Bernie Sanders."

During his reading the cameras broke away to show a teary eyed Bernie. It was an emotional and heartfelt endorsement from his big brother.
