DBQ Democratic Chair Caucus

On Monday, the Iowa Democratic Party announced two presidential candidates, Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders, requested a partial recanvass of the results that came out of 143 precincts. Five of those precincts and two satellite locations are in Dubuque County. Steve Drahozal, the county’s Democratic Party chairperson, said that as far as he knows, he and his party don’t need to do anything to assist with recanvassing. But, he’s not certain, because Drahozal tells KCRG TV, he hasn’t received communication on this matter or on much else from the Iowa Democratic Party over the last week. Drahozal says that includes the news that multiple Dubuque County precincts were part of those recanvass requests. One of those, requested by Bernie Sanders’ campaign, is at a precinct where someone had already alerted Drahozal to a math error in the allocation of county delegates. No one from the IDP has told him what he’s supposed to do about this known error, if anything. At a press conference Monday in Des Moines, IDP chairperson Troy Price told reporters that no one should correct the math on those caucus worksheets.
