    No surprise here: Bernie Sanders got his brother's vote at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday, and Larry Sanders said he cast that vote with   "enormous pride."

    Larry Sanders, who lives in Britain, addressed the convention during the roll call of states, speaking as a member of the Americans Abroad delegation.

    He appeared to be emotional — and said the Sanders brothers' late parents would have been proud of the Vermont senator's accomplishments.

    Video of the presidential candidate showed him attempting to hold back tears as he watched the speech from his seat.

    It was a touching moment on the way to Hillary Clinton's historic nomination for president on the convention's second day — she accepted the party's nominated to become the first female presidential nominee for a major party.

    Sanders was also nominated, but he did not have enough delegates to win the roll call vote. The senator concluded the vote by asking the convention to nominate Clinton by acclamation. The delegates did so, to wild cheers inside the Wells Fargo Center.
