Iowa Democratic Party accepts Sanders, Buttigieg recanvass requests

DES MOINES, Iowa (KWWL) -- The Iowa Democratic Party has returned recanvass assessments to the Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg campaigns, accepting their limited-scope requests.

On Friday, the IDP Recanvass/Recount Committee, in consultation with the State Central Committee, will provide the campaigns further details on costs associated with the recanvass and the timeline. Both campaigns will then have 24 hours to provide the IDP with a final decision on whether to proceed with the requests.

The Committee expects the recanvass to begin on Sunday, February 16 and last for two days. The recanvass will be conducted by appointed recanvass administrators, under the supervision and direction of the Committee. Up to two representatives from each campaign will be allowed to oversee the recanvass effort.

As the results stand right now, Buttigieg would receive 14 state delegate equivalents. Sanders is close behind with 12. Elizabeth Warren would receive 8 delegates, while Joe Biden would capture 6 delegates and Amy Klobuchar would pick up 1 delegate.
