Iowa caucus results: Manual recount delays outcome


Americans anxious to see the outcome from the first contest in the 2020 presidential nominating season were still waiting Tuesday to know the official results from the previous night’s Democratic caucuses in Iowa after reporting issues forced a manual recount. 

Not a single vote had been reported as of 12:30 p.m. EST on Tuesday. 

Many of the candidates have already moved on to New Hampshire, where there is debate Friday and where the first primary of the presidential race will be held next week. 

Reports: Majority of results to be released by 5 p.m., Iowa Dems say

Officials from Iowa’s Democratic Party told the candidates’ campaigns in a private conference call Tuesday that they planned to release a majority of the results by 5 p.m. EST, reported The Associated Press and The Washington Post. 

The state party chairman, Troy Price, told the campaigns they expected to have at least 50% of the results by that time but was unable to say when they expected to have the rest of the data compiled.
