CNN host Kate Bolduan got a little emotional after hearing the eulogy of Heather Heyer from her father.

Bolduan was introducing former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter as the funeral paused for the next speaker.

"Ugh, those emotional words -- and what that father just said about his daughter," she said as her voice quivered.
