Biden Mocks Buttigieg in Ad Contrasting Their Records in Office

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont

Sanders, who finished in a virtual dead heat for first place with Pete Buttigieg in the contested February 3 Iowa caucus, has made the argument that his grassroots campaign can defeat President Donald Trump.

Reports on Thursday found that some unauthorized people saw the phone number Caucus workers dialed and started calling the Party's tabulation center in Des Moines with complaints and misinformation. The IDP has declared Buttigieg the victor of the most delegates with two extra state delegates resulting in his victory.

Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price said the party is reviewing the requests. The Iowa Democratic Party said problems with reporting the caucus results were due partly to "coding issues" with the app, which was being used for the first time. Amy Klobuchar titled her 2015 memoir "The Senator Next Door", but in New Hampshire, her rivals include two congressional colleagues who actually come from neighbouring states.

Buttigieg, who spoke first before the dinner crowd of thousands of Democrats, encountered loud chants of "Wall Street Pete" and "Medicare for All" from Sanders supporters making their presence known with blinking pink "Bernie" signs.

With 41 delegates, the first state to caucus represents around one per cent of the entire pool of delegates, but history has been kind to Democrats who win Iowa.

Last week, Perez said "enough is enough" and called for a complete re-canvass of the caucuses before backtracking on the statement.


"The incorrect math on the Caucus Math Worksheets must not be changed to ensure the integrity of the process". "The seriousness of the record is made clear by the language at the bottom stating that any misrepresentation of the information is a crime". It also says that while Biden, 77, worked to revive the economy after the 2008 crash, Buttigieg's brought new sidewalks to his mid-sized city.

Coming off a good showing in the Iowa caucuses, Sanders told the crowd that New Hampshire could give him the momentum to win future states and possibly put him on the path to the Democratic Presidential nomination.

The Nevada Democratic Party is apparently trying to avoid a repeat of the Iowa caucus chaos. Only 55 required updating, it said.

The party asked the campaigns to submit evidence of inconsistencies in the final results of Monday's caucuses, which ended in a near-tie of former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Vermont Sen.

But even a full recount may not be definitive.

Attention has been thrust onto Buttigieg after the former no-name candidate rose to prominence in the primary race and won the Iowa caucuses with 26.2 per cent.
