Buttigieg claims victory in Iowa but results still pending

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg claimed victory on Tuesday in the Iowa caucuses although party officials have yet to release any official results from a vote plagued by technical problems. “We were able to demonstrate both the winning message and the winning organization,” the 38-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, said in an interview with MSNBC. According to Buttigieg’s website, citing results from 1,200 of the nearly 1,700 precincts in the midwestern state, he earned the support of 24.7 percent of the 152,000 voters who took part in Monday’s caucuses, the kickoff of the presidential nominating season.
