Iowa Dems extend deadline for candidates to seek review

  Iowa Dems extend deadline for candidates to seek review The Iowa Democratic Party extended until Monday a deadline originally set for midday Friday for presidential candidates to request a review of the results of the Iowa caucuses.After a breakdown in tallying the results Monday evening, it took until Thursday for the state party, which operates the series of roughly 1,700 local meetings statewide, to issue final numbers — the result of an app failure and subsequent telephone logjam.

Pete Buttigieg has pulled ahead of Bernie Sanders in delegates to the Democratic National Convention after the Associated Press updated its tally Friday.

The AP has yet to allocate one delegate because of irregularities in the caucus counting. The Iowa Democratic Party said Friday it was extending the deadline for campaigns to contest the results until 12 noon Central Time on Monday.

Iowa’s 41 pledged national delegates represent about 1% of the delegates eligible to vote for president on the first ballot.

Under Democratic National Committee rules, any candidate with at least one delegate is eligible for all five remaining presidential primary debates.
