ERROR: Iowa Democratic Party issues “minor correction,” possibly to Black Hawk County results


(KWWL) -- As caucus results continue to come in, the Iowa Democratic Party is dealing with more issues.

Around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, the party sent out a tweet indicating a "minor correction was needed" but did not elaborate what exactly that error was.

At roughly the same time, Black Hawk County Supervisor Chris Schwartz said delegates for Senator Bernie Sanders were incorrectly given to Deval Patrick.

The Des Moines Register reported results released early Wednesday showed Patrick received 21 state delegates. KWWL has not been able to independently confirm this information.

When corrected results were issued on the party's website, Patrick had no delegates.

In that same report by the Register, numbers for Patrick were incorrectly reported in a Des Moines precinct. The chair for the Polk County Democrats, Sean Bagniewski, confirmed via Twitter that their numbers had been incorrectly reported by the state party. He noted that they were working with the party to correct the error.

KWWL reached out to the Iowa Democratic Party for comment, but have yet to hear back.

More information is expected to be released in the coming days.
