Iowa caucuses began on Monday night, but results have been delayed due to “quality control” issues.
The Iowa Democrat Communications Director Mandy McClure announced that precinct chairs reported issues with downloading the new result reporting app ahead of the caucuses.
Democrat presidential campaigns have started voicing their concerns. Cable news outlets are also voicing concerns about the process as the disaster unfolds.
“The Iowa Democrat party admitted there was a delay because of “quality control.” Earlier in the day, precinct chairs reported some issues with downloading the new result reporting app ahead of the caucuses,” Breitbart News reported.
Just two and half hours after the Iowa caucuses opened, the state party had no results to report.
Presidential campaigns have no idea how they performed, even after the caucus results were complete.
The verified Iowa GOP Twitter account responded, “The Republican Party of Iowa announced President Donald Trump has overwhelmingly won the Iowa Caucuses, smashing all incumbent turnout records!”
The Iowa Democrat Party revamped the Iowa caucus process and promised to release the pre-realignment vote, a final vote, and a delegate count.
The Iowa Democrat Communications Director Mandy McClure said in a statement, “The integrity of the results is paramount.”
“We have experienced a delay in the results due to quality checks and the fact that the IDP is reporting out three data sets for the first time,” she said.
“What we know right now is that around 25 percent of precincts have reported, and early data indicates turnout is on pace for 2016,” she concluded.
