When I think about what happened last night, I think the people of Iowa sent a very profound message to the political establishment, to the economic establishment, and to the media establishment.
And what that message said was that given the enormous crises facing our country, it is too late for establishment politics and economics in this country. That we can no longer continue to have a corrupt campaign finance system. And that this moment in our history requires us to think big.
I am overwhelmed and moved by the fact that millions of people throughout the country made last night possible, and that we were able to do it without begging millionaires for money, and without a super PAC. We are going to win this campaign or we are going to lose, but we are going to do it together. And we can’t let up now.
Bernie Sanders. Feb.2, 2016.
The closest race in history.
Clinton was awarded 699.57 state delegate equivalents, versus 695.49 for Sanders, Iowa Democratic Party Chairwoman Andy McGuire said in a statement. The results were the closest in state Democratic caucus history, and 171,109 Democratic voters turned out to caucus.
With 99.9 percent of precincts reporting, Clinton had 49.9 percent of delegates and Sanders had 49.5 percent, according to The Associated Press. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley received less than 1 percent then suspended his campaign. A single precinct had yet to report as of 5 a.m. Eastern time; that precinct, in Des Moines, is worth 2.28 state delegate equivalents.'" http://politi.co/1NNZfiN
