The Iowa Democratic Party has informed the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernard Sanders that it has no results for 90 precincts across the state, which could account for as much as 5 percent of the total vote. What’s more, the party has asked the campaigns for help in getting a tally for those missing results. “We are, right now, calling all our precinct captains on precincts where we have knowledge of what’s missing, to report what we think happened there,” a visibly irate Robert Becker, Sanders’ state director told Roll Call after Sanders’ speech at the Holiday Inn near the Des Moines airport. “They’ve asked the other campaigns to do the same thing. At the end of the day, there’s probably going to be squabbles on it,” he added.
