But one tearful moment stood out among the rest for Sanders enthusiasts.
Larry Sanders, Bernie’s brother, cast his vote at Wells Fargo Arena as a delegate for Democrats Abroad (Larry lives in Great Britain). Offering a heartfelt tribute to his parents and his brother’s political campaign, Larry became emotional as he cast his vote.
“They did not have easy lives,” Larry Sanders said of their parents. “And they died young, but they would be immensely proud of their son and his accomplishments.”
