Buttigieg, Sanders in near tie

Bernie Sanders declares 'decisive victory'



We will update this article throughout the day with details on the Iowa Democratic caucus results.

With 100% of precincts reported, Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders are in a near tie in state delegates in the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, according to the Iowa Democtratic Party.

The complete results, which were long-delayed after Monday’s caucuses, show Buttigieg, the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor, with 26.198% of delegate equivalents and Bernie Sanders with 26.128%, late Thursday evening. 

The head of the national Democratic Party has already demanded the results be recanvassed. That demand, plus potential errors in the count, mean that the results may not be final and will likely be disputed. 

After the final results were published by the part Thursday, the Associated Press again said it was unable to declare a winner, saying in an advisory, “there is evidence the party has not accurately tabulated some of its results, including those released late Thursday that the party reported as complete.
