With absentee voting starting Monday in California, Bernie Sanders will arrive in the state that night, planning rallies in Sacramento on Monday and Stockton on Tuesday, a campaign source said.

Venues and times had not yet been decided.

Despite his increasingly narrow chance of defeating Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary, Sanders has said he will continue on through primary voting in California on June 7. He insists he can still beat Clinton, while suggesting he will also carry a more progressive message to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July.

Following his upset victory on Tuesday in Indiana, Sanders said “we think we have a pretty good chance” to win in California.

Sanders trails Clinton in recent polls in California, but he has drawn thousands of supporters to rallies here.

Clinton was campaigning in the Los Angeles area on Thursday and will hold an event in Oakland on Friday.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is introduced by RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United, at an endorsement event in August 2015.
