The delays have also raised question two involved parties which have been acknowledged by Mr. Perez.
The causes system denied Bernie Sanders victory with the most votes because it is calculated and awarded depending on the support across the state.
Pete Buttigieg won the caucuses by basing on the metric which is believed by the state and the officials to be highly prioritized.
Amidst the controversy, the state party confirmed that a recanvassing of the results are on the way as requested by the two parties. The recounting procedure will take place immediately and will be completed within two days of processing.
Mr. Price, however, added that all the blame shouldn’t be pointed towards the state party as they have a lot of partners when the failure happened. “We worked collaboratively with our partners, our vendors, and the DNC in this process, and I am confident the review will be able to determine exactly what went wrong, what went right, and how we can avoid this from ever happening again,”
The Chairman Troy Price boasted a lot of credentials before becoming the head of the state party. He was once an executive director of one right advocacy organization named One Iowa. He also has a lot of political involvement with past politicians.
