Pete Buttigieg wins another delegate to widen lead over Bernie Sanders

DES MOINES — Pete Buttigieg widened his lead in the Iowa caucuses Sunday when the Iowa Democratic Party updated results for 55 of 1,765 precincts. 

In new projections, Buttigieg would be awarded 14 national delegates, up from 13 delegates in previous allotments; U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont would be awarded 12 national delegates. 

Sanders’ campaign plans to ask state party officials for a “partial recanvass” of results, a Sanders aide confirmed Sunday night ahead of Monday’s deadline for such requests. A recanvass is not a recount, but a check of the vote count to ensure the results were added correctly. 

The Associated Press has said it is unable to declare a Democratic caucus winner because it believes the results may not be fully accurate and are still subject to potential revision.

Sunday’s new tallies came after presidential campaigns were asked to submit“documentary evidence” of inconsistencies in caucus precinct results. The party corrected results when the numbers reported by the party did not match the precinct’s official results.

Buttigieg now leads Sanders with about 564.3 state delegate equivalents to Sanders’ 561.5. Iowa Democratic Party spokesperson Mandy McClure said officials do not expect further updates to the results.
