Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a small advantage to her contester for the presidential election nomination of the Democratic Party, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, after Clinton narrowly won the Democratic caucuses in Iowa, the Associated Press said Tuesday afternoon. The AP says, it is the closest race in caucuses history.
The Democratic Party in Iowa ruled out any recount of the close results, while Sanders’ campaign would not challenge the results.
Hillary Clinton announced victory early Tuesday in a tie contest against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in Iowa, CNN reports, but the Democratic party officials have not yet declared a winner. Hillary Clinton’s Iowa director of the campaign Matt Paul said on Twitter, “Hillary Clinton has won the Iowa Caucus.” “After thorough reporting — and analysis — of results, there is no uncertainty and Secretary Clinton has clearly won the most national and state delegates,” the tweet says.
But, as CNN reports, the Democrats were not ready yet to made that call. “The results tonight are the closest in Iowa Democratic caucus history,” Iowa party chairman Andy McGuire said. “We will report that final precinct when we have confirmed those results with the chair,” CNN reports.
