Iowa caucus leaves Democrats still searching for answers

DES MOINES, Iowa (WAOW) -- The Iowa Democratic Party has yet to release official results of Monday's caucus citing "quality checks" and "inconsistencies."

Election officials are now turning to hand counting results from the more than 1,600 caucusing sites, according to ABC News.

The Iowa Democratic Party says the problem isn't due to intrusion or hacking and plans to release the results later Tuesday.

Most of the Democrat candidates remain confident in their performances.

"Iowa, you have shocked the nation," said Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

"When those results are announced, I have a feeling we're gonna be doing very, very well here in Iowa," said Senator Bernie Sanders.

Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign released a statement responding to the lack of results, saying "We believe that the campaigns deserve full explanations and relevant information regarding the methods of quality control you are employing, and an opportunity to respond, before any official results are released."

President Donald Trump tweeting about the debacle saying it "is an unmitigated disaster."
