Statewide Iowa — The Iowa Democratic Party released updated results from last Monday’s Iowa Caucuses on Sunday evening, giving Pete Buttigieg two more NATIONAL convention delegates than Bernie Sanders, but Sanders plans to ask for a “partial” re-canvas of specific precincts. Sanders discussed the situation during an appearance on CNN.

Iowa Democratic Party chairman Troy Price issued another public apology during a news conference late Friday afternoon.

By mid-day Saturday, precinct chairs and presidential campaigns asked Iowa Democratic Party officials to review the results of 95 precincts. By Sunday evening, the party revised results in 55 precincts. Results from another 36 precincts could not be altered, according to Price, even though there were errors in delegate calculations.

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee said on CNN this weekend he is “mad as hell” and there will be a conversation about the November election about whether Iowa’s Caucuses retain their first-in-the-nation status. Price’s response?

With Sanders’ request for a re-canvas, it’s likely the results of Tuesday’s New Hampshire Primary will be final before LAST Monday’s Caucus results are final. Sanders said the Iowa Democratic Party exhibited extraordinary incompetence. Sanders said the situation is a disgrace to Iowans who take the caucuses seriously.
