Candidates Give Victory Speeches in Iowa As Results Are Delayed

"I have been on hold for over an hour with the Iowa Democratic Party", he told anchor Wolf Blitzer, explaining that his county was not able to use the app. Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.

The caucuses, which began at around 8:00 p.m. EST on Monday (1:00 a.m. GMT), saw five Democrats contending for their party's presidential nomination.

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, meanwhile, skipped Iowa entirely to focus on New Hampshire.

"This is an organization that is built for the long haul", she said in the pre-dawn darkness.

But despite the conspiracy theories, there is no evidence that the Buttigieg campaign had any connection to Shadow Inc's handling of the caucus results. "The application's reporting issue did not impact the ability of precinct chairs to report data accurately".

The local party chairman Troy Price later said: "We are validating every piece of data we have against our paper trail".

So what happened? Last night, as everyone wearily resigned themselves to the idea that this contest would be dragged on longer than a single day, despite how we'd all been looking forward to finally getting it over with, that was a bit unclear. "We are thrilled and absolutely consider that a victory".

"I hope that what happened in Iowa is going to be a wake-up call for us as it relates to what can happen and what the risks are".

Neither wing of the party emerged from Iowa ready to coalesce behind a single candidate.

Three candidates - Sanders, Warren and Amy Klobuchar - have faced the unprecedented scenario of spending much of the past two weeks tethered to Washington for the impeachment trial of Trump instead of on the campaign trail in Iowa. The New York Times also reported that Mook's company was involved in testing the app. Early Tuesday morning, Bernie Sanders's campaign released internal caucus numbers from 40% of the precincts in Iowa showing the Vermont senator was in first place with almost 30% of the final count vote.

New Hampshire and SC, which both hold primaries instead of caucuses, said they had similar faith in their well-tested systems.

The campaigns of the various candidates also criticized the process. "By all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious". "How do you know your candidate can win?"

Elizabeth Warren, the United States senator, told her supporters the race was "too close to call".

That's not likely. Iowans have been caucusing since statehood in 1846. But while unemployment is less than 3%, wages have stagnated over the past decade, rising far slower than nationally, according to a report from the University of New Hampshire's Carsey School of Public Policy. All that combines to show why a candidate like Sanders could appeal to voters in the state in 2016.

Democratic voters were also divided based on age, education and sex.

Who could have seen it coming?

There is room for each of the candidates to expand their support over the next week of campaigning in New Hampshire because a large share of the electorate is undecided or lightly committed to supporting a candidate.

Almost two-thirds said it was more important for them to vote for a candidate who will fundamentally change how the political system works, compared with one who will restore Washington to the way it was before Trump's inauguration.
