Despite having lost the Democratic presidential nomination, "the Bernie revolution" will continue with the "next phase" launching nationwide Wednesday night.
Some 2,600 watch parties and meetings are set to take place across the country tonight as former Democratic presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) addresses thousands of his supporters to "lay out some of the next steps we can take as a movement to empower a wave of progressive candidates this November and win the major upcoming fights for the values we share," according to Our Revolution President Jeff Weaver, who also served as Sanders' presidential campaign manager.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was deemed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee by the Associated Press Monday night as six states, including California, prepared to hold primary elections on Tuesday.
Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) won the Oregon primary against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, beating the alleged party favorite 56 percent to 44 percent. Sanders narrowly lost the primary in Kentucky, where Independents were not allowed to vote, with the divide between winner and loser being less than 2,000 votes.
Sanders' continued wins -- he has triumphed over Clinton in 20 states -- reinforces the arguments of some who say the presidential process has been rigged in the favor of the former Secretary of State from the start.
