Hillary Clinton has been officially declared the winner of the Iowa Democratic caucuses after a historically close matchup against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Clinton was awarded 700.59 state delegate equivalents, and Sanders was awarded 696.82 state delegate equivalents, the Iowa Democratic Party said Tuesday, after vote counting stretched through the night without the Associated Press calling the race. A total of 171,109 Democrats voted in the caucus.
Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ campaign manager, told CNN the campaign was not contesting the outcome and also not admitting defeat. He said he thinks Sanders won the popular vote in Iowa.
“You know it’s a very complicated, nuanced process. There’s human error and new technology that was just introduced that people have some concerns about,” Weaver said, adding that he wants the total number of votes cast for each candidate to be released to the public.
“I think the people of America would love to know what the raw numbers were of who came out to support each candidate,” he said.
Clinton, who had already been touting her Iowa victory while campaigning in New Hampshire, acknowledged the triumph on Twitter.
