The progressive organization Indivisible has asked the 20 candidates for the Democratic Party's nomination to sign a pledge vowing to support the eventual nominee, BuzzFeed News reports.

Indivisible posted the pledge on their website last Tuesday. It states:

"We must defeat [President] Donald Trump. The first step is a primary contest that produces a strong Democratic nominee. The second step is winning the general election. We will not accept anything less."

The group then lists three pledges: to "make the primary constructive" by focusing on issues and ideas, to "rally behind the winner," and support the eventual nominee "whoever it is," and to "do the work to beat Trump" by agreeing to help the Democratic nominee's campaign.

As of Thursday morning, no candidate has signed the pledge, although the candidates did sign a pledge issued by the Democratic National Committee vowing to identify as members of the Democratic Party, to "run as a Democrat" and to "serve as a Democrat if elected."
