Presidential campaigns have been told tonight to not expect any results from the Iowa caucuses until at some point on Tuesday, two officials tell CNN.
“At this point now they need to get it right,” one official said.
An Iowa Democratic official said results are still being collected now — and will be overnight if the precinct chairs keep calling them in. There was no estimated time given to campaigns.
“They literally have no verified results,” a senior campaign adviser said. “We won’t know anything until some time Tuesday — at least.”
Des Moines County Democratic Co-chair Tom Courtney tells CNN that he tried for 15-30 minutes to send in results on the mobile app before giving up and calling in to the hotline.
When that didn’t work either, he made plans to call in the results tomorrow morning.
“I will try tomorrow, but I have a doctor’s appointment in the morning so it might be 10 a.m. by the time I turn in results,” Courtney said.
He had 118 caucus goers, down from more than 200 from past election cycles. His caucus ended around 8:30 p.m. local time.
Van Jones called the delay “a debacle.”
