Members of the Iowa Democratic Party publicly blamed supporters of President Trump for their full-fledged caucus meltdown this week; claiming Republican voters “flooded” their hotlines as officials were trying to transmit the results.
“Red-faced Iowa Democrats have zeroed in on a new culprit for the botched caucuses that may cost the Hawkeye State its time-honored role as the kickoff to presidential races. After first blaming an app for the inability to declare Monday night, a problem that still lingers even as frustrated candidates have packed up and moved on to New Hampshire for the nation’s first primary, the state party is blaming the president’s supporters,” reports Fox News.
“Ken Sagar, a Democratic central committee member in the state, told a conference call Wednesday that on the night of the caucus, Trump backers were calling in to voice their support for the president, Bloomberg reported. Sagar was reportedly one of the people answering the calls,” adds Fox.
With over 90% of the results in, Pete Buttigieg maintains a slight delegate lead over Bernie Sanders, followed by Elizabeth Warren in third place and Joe Biden in fourth.
“So we don’t know the results. But we know. By the time it’s all said and done, you have shocked the nation,” the former South Bend, Ind., mayor told his supporters. “Because, by all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious.”
