Iowa caucus: Initial results show Pete Buttigieg ahead amid voting ‘farce’

Pete Buttigieg is leading the Iowa caucus with 62% of the precincts reporting, with former vice president Joe Biden falling back to fourth spot.

The former South Bend mayor received 26.9% with Bernie Sanders close behind with 25.1%, according to partial results from the first vote to pick a Democratic White House candidate.

Elizabeth Warren was third on 18.3% and Joe Biden fourth on 15.6%.

The day was marred by a long delay due to what Iowa’s Democratic Party called “inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results”.

A coding error in the app used by the party has been blamed for the delays.
