What Comes After Iowa Caucuses Disaster?



As more results from Monday’s Iowa caucuses rolled out two days later, candidates Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders appeared to be the top two winners with Sanders garnering more votes and Buttigieg snagging more delegates.

The delayed response is due in part to the disastrous app failure from the tech company Shadow.  The company's chief executive Gerard Niemira  said on Wednesday, “We feel really terrible.” He added in an understatement,

“I’m really disappointed that some of our technology created an issue that made the caucus difficult.”

According to reports, the Nevada caucus will not be using the same app as Iowa. As New Hampshire’s primary approaches, what has the fallout of Iowa been and what does it bode for the coming elections?

Steven Rosenfeld, Editor/Chief Correspondent & Senior Writing Fellow for Voting Booth, reports from Iowa.
