Just breaking:

“The integrity of the results is paramount. We have experienced a delay due to quality checks and the fact that the IDP is reporting out three data sets for the first time. What we know right now around 25% of the precincts have reported, and early data indicates turnout is on pace for 2016.”

No ETA on results. Surprising to see turnout is on pace with 2016, since many were expecting higher. Low turnout likely hurts Sanders. Maybe helps moderate candidates.

Surprisingly, the statement makes no mention of the reported issues around the app being used to log caucus results. Ruby Cramer at Buzzfeed says that campaigns are currently being briefed by state party representatives on a “technical issue” delaying results.

David Plouffe just said on MSNBC that “we may be seeing the last Iowa Caucuses” that are first on the primary calendar. This is not a good look for the state party.
