>> I look forward in the coming weeks to continue discussion between the two campaigns, to make sure that your voices are heard.>> Bernie Sanders not throwing in the towel just yet. Vowing to keep up his reform fight Thursday night in a live stream to the faithful while also inching closer to presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton.
>> We must continue our grass roots effort and we must take that energy into the democratic national convention.>> John Whiteside is on the story.>> Sanders isn't formally ending his campaign but he is shifting his tone a little bit and shifting his priorities. Now, for him it's about building the support he had through the primary process into a permanent movement that can keep his political revolution alive.
>> This campaign has never been about any single candidate. It has always been about transforming America.>> He also wants to see some changes to the Democratic nominating process. He'd like to see independents being able to vote in the democratic primaries. But even though he's not formally ending his campaign, he's acknowledging that he's not gonna be the nominee.
He's laid off campaign staff. He's not holding rallies.>> On Tuesday, Sanders and Clinton met for nearly 2 hours in Washington. Both candidates calling the meeting positive and emphasizing their shared goal of defeating Republican nominee Donald Trump.>> It doesn't hurt Clinton if he doesn't come on board right now.
The expectation is that he's eventually gonna be on board with Clinton. And they'll be united and trying to beat Trump in November. The more than happy to give them a couple more weeks. And give him the space he needs to work on his own network and they know that eventually is gonna be in their corner.
>> I also look forward to working with Secretary Clinton to transform the Democratic Party
