Bernie Sanders sure knows how to bring his supporters to tears.
Passion for the former Democratic presidential candidate was clear as he gave his speech Monday in support of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Below are photos of some of the people who cried (or nearly cried) during the Vermont senator's address and before it.
Clinton is expected to officially become the Democratic Party's presidential nominee today as the result of a state-by-state roll call vote.
