Whatever happens with Bernie Sanders and the presidential race, his supporters say one thing is certain: Their movement will continue.

Progressive groups looking to build on Sanders' insurgent campaign are gathering in Chicago. They're discussing how to unite on issues such as a $15 minimum wage, better police accountability and health care for all.

Becky Bond was senior adviser to Sanders' campaign. She tells a crowd of about 3,000 on Saturday they have the makings to create "something much huger than what we've done on the Bernie Sanders campaign."

Hillary Clinton has secured enough delegates and superdelegates to be the presumptive Democratic nominee, but Sanders hasn't conceded.

On Thursday he urged supporters to continue their "political revolution" and to join him in working to defeat presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
