Pete Buttigieg & Bernie Sanders Lead in Early Iowa Results

The final results of Monday’s Democratic Iowa caucuses remain unknown, with 71% of precincts reporting the final tallies of the first 2020 presidential contest. Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor, Pete Buttigieg narrowly leads with 26.8% of precincts — the state delegate equivalent traditionally used to determine the winner — followed by Sanders with 25.2%.

It is unclear when full results will be released and how the reporting problems will impact the Democratic race.

Democratic officials cited problems with a newly created app built by a firm called Shadow that was supposed to help precincts report results.

The Democratic Party in Nevada was also planning to use the app during its upcoming caucuses but abandoned that plan on Tuesday.

Democracy Now! speaks with Lee Fang, a reporter with The Intercept.

His new piece is titled New Details Show How Deeply Iowa Caucus App Developer Was Embedded in Democratic Establishment.
