Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign filed paperwork Monday requesting a “partial recanvass” of at least 25 different precincts in Iowa; refusing to officially concede the caucus to Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
“The Sanders campaign is requesting a recanvass of 25 precincts and three satellite caucuses, which it argues have errors in counting. If the errors exist, the campaign says it will pick up one more national delegate and tip the balance of the race in Sanders’ favor,” reports Fox News.
“While a recanvass is just the first step in the process and we don’t expect it to change the current calculations, it is a necessary part of making sure Iowans can trust the final results of the caucus,” Bernie 2020 senior adviser Jeff Weaver said. “Our volunteers and supporters worked too hard, and too many people participated for the first time, to have the results depend on calculations that even the party admits are incorrect.”
“Once the recanvass and a subsequent recount are completed in these precincts, we feel confident we will be awarded the extra national delegate our volunteers and grassroots donors earned,” he added.
