Democratic Party officials in the US state of Iowa have found new errors in the original count in Monday’s Iowa caucus where Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton narrowly beat Bernie Sanders.
The audit by the Iowa Democratic Party discovered errors in five of 14 precincts across the state from last week’s caucuses that shrink Clinton’s overall advantage to a 0.25 percent lead over Sanders.
Sanders picked up small additional totals of state delegate equivalents because of precinct mistakes in Marion, Woodbury and Poweshiek counties. Reports of discrepancies in other precincts are still being reviewed.
Sanders campaign director in Iowa, Pete D’Alessandro, said in an interview Sunday that he welcomed the additional delegates that were put into the Vermont senator’s corner because of the errors.
