Sanders Requests Recanvass Of 25 Iowa Precincts

The Hill reports:

Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) presidential campaign is requesting a partial recanvass of Iowa caucus results, citing “mathematical errors and inconsistencies” in the tabulations for more than two dozen precincts.

In a letter to Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price, Sanders said that discrepancies in the vote tally at 25 precincts and three satellite caucus sites led to at least 3.2312 too many state delegate equivalents being awarded to former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Sanders said he received at least 2.3942 too few state delegate equivalents.

“These errors and inconsistencies are ripe for review because their correction would change the national delegate allocation by moving, at a minimum, one delegate from Mayor Buttigieg to my campaign,” Sanders wrote in the letter.
