The Iowa Democratic Party put out a statement late Monday evening explaining why caucus results have yet to be released.
“The integrity of the results is paramount. We have experienced a delay in the results due to quality checks and the fact that the Iowa Democratic Party is reporting out three data sets for the first time," the party explained in a statement.
