The Iowa caucuses are the first test in the 2020 presidential primary season. However, there’s been a delay in the results.
The Hawkeye State is on hold as officials say there is some issue with Feb. 3’s caucuses, and state officials are combing over a paper trail of results.
“This is being run by the state political party and by volunteers, so no surprise that we’d be running into some problems,” explained senior political analyst Mark Preston.
Meanwhile, Democratic presidential hopefuls have been trying to take matters in stride.
“So, you probably heard, we don’t know the results,” said Democratic presidential candidate Senator Amy Klobuchar.
“It is too close to call, so I’m just going to tell you what I do know,” said Senator Elizabeth Warren, “you won!”
Now, they’re trying to be patient.
“Folks, well, it looks like it’s going to be a long night,” presidential candidate Joe Biden told the crowd Monday night. “But,” he said, “I’m feeling good.”
“I would imagine, have a strong feeling, that at some point the results will be announced,” said Senator Bernie Sanders.
As caucus-goers are waiting to see who won the state, the quest for the White House is rolling ahead.
“We take our message onward, to New Hampshire, which has a way of making up its own mind, to Nevada to South Carolina and beyond to every corner of America,” said candidate Pete Buttigieg.
