The 2020 primary season kicked off Monday, February 3, with the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses.
But a week later, the results were still not finalized.
Delays in reporting the results, along with errors in what has been reported, have rocked the Democratic nomination process.
Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price blamed the delay on a "coding error" with the app they planned to use to report the numbers. He apologized and called the delay "unacceptable."
Days later, the Iowa Democratic Party announced that it was extending the time that campaigns had to call for a recanvass or recount. The campaigns of Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg requested a partial recanvass on February 10.
Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had a narrow lead with 26.2% of state delegate equivalents. Sanders, a US senator from Vermont, was just behind him with 26.1%. If the results are left unchanged, Buttigieg would be the Iowa winner with 14 delegates, according to the Iowa Democratic Party. Sanders would receive 12 delegates.
US Sen. Elizabeth Warren (18%) would get eight delegates. Former Vice President Joe Biden (15.8%) would get six delegates, and US Sen. Amy Klobuchar (12.3%) would get one.
The winner of the Iowa caucuses has frequently gone on to be the Democratic nominee. In seven of the last nine competitive Democratic primaries, the candidate who placed first in Iowa eventually became the nominee.
