‘A farce’: Bizarre and confusing Democratic caucus descends into chaos

Results in the Iowa Democratic caucuses have been delayed due to “inconsistencies” – creating widespread confusion among the campaigns.

Spokeswoman Mandy McClure said: “This is simply a reporting issue, the app did not go down and this is not a hack or an intrusion.”

Iowa Democrats packed more than 1,600 schools, community centres and other public venues on Monday to choose their preferred candidate from a field of 11 contenders.

But those contenders will have to wait to find out who emerged on top in what is the first major contest for the Democrats in the race for the White House.

In the 12th district of Alkeny, a suburb of Des Moines, I witnessed my first caucus.
