Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price to resign after caucus chaos

Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price to resign after caucus chaos
Troy Price resigned his position as chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party on Wednesday as the organization grapples with the fallout of a botched caucus process that has left the party and state reeling.

"While it is my desire to stay in this role and see this process through to completion, I do believe it is time for the Iowa Democratic Party to begin looking forward, and my presence in my current role makes that more difficult. Therefore, I will resign as chair of the Iowa Democratic Party effective upon the election of my replacement," Price said in a letter to the Iowa Democratic Party's State Central Committee.

Price said he will call for an emergency meeting of the state central committee at 1 p.m. Saturday to elect an interim chair.

“Whomever is elected will oversee the completion of the recanvass and recount process and begin the process of healing our party,” he wrote.

New York Times - (Feb 14)
We Checked the Iowa Caucus Math. Here’s Where It Didn’t Add Up.

Since the troubled Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3, the state Democratic party has revised the results for about 100 of the state’s 1,765 precincts, and officials are still scrambling to verify dozens more precinct results after reports of widespread inconsistencies.

There has often been some fuzziness in the way the results of the Iowa caucuses were calculated and reported. But this is the first year that Iowa Democrats released raw vote counts. The transparency provided the public with its first opportunity to check the complex math that determines which candidates get the delegates they need to win the Democratic nomination.

And in many cases, the math did not check out. In such a close race — Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., is leading Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont by a tenth of a percentage point — even small mistakes can add up.

Here are some of the inconsistencies and errors The New York Times uncovered in an analysis of the Iowa Democratic Party’s results. ...

What it means

These kinds of miscalculations are easy to make. The caucus math worksheet, which caucus volunteers use to record votes, does not offer instructions for every scenario, and volunteers must consult a handbook for advice on the less common ones. Moreover, the handbook does not appear to cover every potential situation, and delegates could mistakenly be awarded to the wrong candidates.

The Times checked the delegate math in more than 1,200 precincts. The vast majority of these appeared to follow the rules. But at least 28 precincts appear to have gotten it wrong, with consequences for the candidates. (About 500 precincts had some inconsistency or complication that precluded a check for delegate calculation errors.)

Buttigieg, Sanders separated by sliver in Iowa after recanvass

Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are separated by thousandths of a percentage point in Iowa after the state Democratic Party completed a recanvass of several precincts from this month’s caucuses.

The new results, posted online by the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP), cut down Buttigieg’s already slim lead in state delegate equivalents over Sanders, though the former South Bend, Ind. mayor still maintains an edge over the Vermont senator.

Buttigieg leads Sanders by .08 state delegate equivalents – 26.186 percent for Buttigieg to 26.182 percent for Sanders. Buttigieg had previously led by two state delegate equivalents after the tally was first fully reported.

Sanders continues to lead in the popular vote count, garnering 45,831 votes to Buttigieg's 43,273.

Buttigieg retains his 14-12 advantage in delegates to the Democratic National Convention due to caucus rules regarding delegate allocation. However, that result could change if either campaign asks for a recount. Both campaigns now have 24 hours to officially request a recount.

Associated Press
Bernie Sanders' campaign to request recount of Iowa caucuses

WASHINGTON (AP) — Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign plans to ask for a partial recount of the Iowa caucus results,after the state Democratic Party released results of its recanvass late Tuesday that show Sanders and Pete Buttigieg in an effective tie.

Sanders campaign senior adviser Jeff Weaver told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday that the campaign has had a representative in contact with the Iowa Democratic Party throughout the recanvass process. “Based on what we understand to be the results, we intend to ask for a recount,” he said.

A Sanders spokesman confirmed that the campaign still planned to pursue a recount after the party released its updated results.

In the new results, released by the Iowa Democratic Party, Buttigieg has 563.207 state delegate equivalents and Sanders has 563.127 state delegate equivalents out of 2,152 counted. That is a margin of 0.004 percentage points.

The AP remains unable to declare a winner based on the available information, as the results may still not be fully accurate and are still subject to the recount.

Happy Caucus Day, Iowans.

I expect the least conclusive and informative results EVAR, with nobody doing better than 25%, and nobody else dropping out before New Hampshire 8 days from today.

Politico
Iowa Democrats will recount more than 20 caucus precincts

The state party accepted requests from both Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg to reexamine the results from the Feb. 3 precinct caucuses.

The Iowa state Democratic Party announced Friday it accepted a limited recount request from the two top candidates in this month's caucuses: Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders.

An unsigned statement from the state party said it will recount 10 precincts requested by the Sanders campaign and 14 by the Buttigieg campaign, for a total of 23 unique precincts.

The party accepted the entirety of Sanders' recount request, according to data it released earlier this week. However, the party did not accept the entirety of Buttigieg's campaign request. His campaign requested a recount in 54 precincts, but just 14 were accepted, according to a list released by the state party.

"Of the 54 submissions from the Buttigieg campaign, 37 precinct submissions contained the information required to request a recount," a state party spokesman said in a statement to POLITICO, when asked why some precincts were rejected. "Of those precincts, 14 were determined to be eligible for a recount. The remainder of the precincts were determined ineligible for recount" because they would not change the delegate results, the spokesman added.

The state party said it "transmitted to the campaigns further details on costs associated with the recount and the timeline going forward," and that the two campaigns have 24 hours to respond "with financial information to proceed with the request."

The recount is expected to start Tuesday and last for two days.

Des Moines Register
Iowa Democrats expected to release final caucus recount results Thursday

Thursday should be the day: The final results of the Iowa caucuses and resolution to the Iowa delegate math that so far gives Pete Buttigieg a slight lead are expected to be released.

The Iowa Democratic Party began a recount of 23 precinct locations on Tuesday and expected it to last two days. The recount stems from requests by Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, of Vermont.

Buttigieg holds a 14-12 lead over Sanders in the national delegates from Iowa, a projection based on state delegate equivalents awarded at the caucus precinct sites.

Sanders has claimed victory in Iowa based on total supporters at caucus sites on first and second alignment, a measure he likens to a popular vote victory. Because of electoral college-like apportionment, supporter turnout doesn't necessarily mean a proportional award in state delegate equivalents, or SDEs. ...

Original tallies from caucus night showed Buttigieg with a lead of about two SDEs over Sanders. Following internal reviews by the state party and a recanvass, that lead dwindled to less than a tenth of a SDE.

In its recount request, Sanders campaign officials identified about 1.7 state delegate equivalents that it believes were misallocated — enough to give Sanders final victory in Iowa.

The Associated Press has not called a winner of the Feb. 3 Iowa contest.

According to state party rules, the state central committee, which acts as a governing board of the Iowa Democratic Party, must certify the caucus results no later than Saturday.

KWWL
Iowa Democratic Party announces results of caucus recount

DES MOINES, Iowa (KWWL) -- The Iowa Democratic Party announced the results of the limited-scope recount requests from the Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders campaigns. The recount process resulted in no change to the National Delegate allocation. Pete Buttigieg has 14 national delegates, Sanders has 12.

Over a two-day period beginning on Tuesday, recount administrators recounted the Presidential Preference Cards from 23 precincts. As a result of the recount, county level delegate allocation changed in 19 precincts.

As part of the 2020 IDP Caucus changes, Presidential Preference Cards serve as a paper trail of attendance to be used as the exclusive record in the event of a recount. For each precinct, administrators counted the numbered cards to determine overall attendance and viability. Administrators then sorted the two-sided cards reflecting caucusgoers’ first and second preferences to recreate the movement in the room.

To be eligible for a recount, a campaign needed to provide evidence suggesting caucus errors would change the allocation of one or more National Delegates.

The results from the recounted precincts can be found here.

Associated Press

AP decides not to declare Iowa caucus winner after recount

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Iowa Democratic Party on Thursday released updated results of the Iowa caucuses after the completion of a recount requested by the campaigns of Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg.

In the new results, Buttigieg has 562.954 state delegate equivalents and Sanders has 562.021 state delegate equivalents out of 2,151 counted. That is a margin of 0.04 percentage points.

The Associated Press has reviewed the updated results and will not call a winner, given remaining concerns about whether the results as reported by the party are fully accurate. The Feb. 3 caucuses were beset by technical glitches that led to a delay in reporting the results, inconsistencies in the numbers and no clear winner.

The party plans to certify the results on Saturday. At that point, the caucuses will formally end, and no further changes to the results will be made.

Iowa awards 41 national delegates in its caucuses. As it stands, Buttigieg has 13 delegates and Sanders has 12. Elizabeth Warren won eight, Joe Biden won six and Amy Klobuchar won one.

A final delegate will be awarded to Buttigieg as the candidate with the most state delegate equivalents. The AP will update its tally of the national delegates won in Iowa with that final delegate on Saturday, once the Iowa Democratic Party formally votes to certify the results.

CNN
Bernie Sanders campaign challenges Iowa recount results

(CNN) Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign challenged the results of the Iowa caucuses recount just hours after the state's Democratic Party released its results Thursday night.

The recount had been requested by both Sanders' campaign and the campaign of former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

In a complaint sent to the Iowa Democratic Party and Democratic National Committee, the Sanders campaign claims the state party violated its own rules by allowing the Buttigieg campaign to partake in the process because they didn't meet the proper requirements.

"[T]he request submitted by the Buttigieg Campaign was deficient because it failed to provide an explanation of how the national delegation could be altered," 18 potential Sanders delegates wrote in the challenge. "Because he did not...[the] request was deficient and should have been denied."

The Iowa Democratic Party reported Thursday that Buttigieg held his lead over Sanders with the most state delegate equivalents after a recount of select caucus sites.

Neither the order of finish nor the national delegate allocation previously announced by the party changed as a result of the recount, which covered 23 precincts.

Associated Press
Iowa Dems certify results of troubled presidential caucuses

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- The Iowa Democratic Party State Central Committee has certified the results of the 2020 presidential caucuses.

This comes nearly a month after a faulty mobile app and other problems delayed counting and prompted calls for Iowa to lose its first-in-the-nation status.

Iowa awards 41 national delegates in its caucuses. Following Saturday's certification of the Feb. 3 caucuses, Buttigieg had 14 delegates and Sanders had 12. Elizabeth Warren won eight, Joe Biden won six and Amy Klobuchar won one.

The Associated Press opted not to call a winner, given remaining concerns about whether the results as reported by the party were fully accurate.

But The A.P. allowed that it would allocate the final outstanding delegate to Mr. Buttigieg such that its results would reflect those from the Iowa Democratic Party. Previously, The A.P. had awarded only 13 delegates to Mr. Buttigieg and withheld the final delegate that goes to the statewide winner.
