Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez called for an immediate "recanvass" of Iowa as concerns mounted about the integrity of the results from Monday's first-in-the-nation caucuses in the state.

"Enough is enough," Perez wrote in a post on Twitter. "In light of the problems that have emerged in the implementation of the delegate selection plan and in order to assure public confidence in the results, I am calling on the Iowa Democratic Party to immediately begin a recanvass."
