Hmm, and the MSM tried to paint the GOP races as the circus, it really looks like that belongs to the Democrat party …
The Des Moines Register writes, Iowa’s nightmare revisited: Was correct winner called? The worst thing happened Monday night for the Democrat party and that is the nightmare scenario played out live and in color, a tie between the establishment candidate Hillary Clinton and the self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. Making matters worse, the vote was so close that there is no way to ever know who really won because there is always some form of voter fraud of miscounting inherent in any vote. The division seems to be great among Democrats as the Sanders supporters chanted, “She’s a liar.” Hmm, that’s something you will not heat or see reported by the MSM, there is only turmoil among the GOP. The nightmare gets worse for Hillary and the establishment Democrat party, how is it possible that Hillary Clinton and her all-powerful team, the ultra-establishment candidate failed to win over Iowa caucus goers and lost a +50 point lead in Iowa to a 74 year old socialist candidate in Bernie Sanders?
It’s Iowa’s nightmare scenario revisited: An extraordinarily close count in the Iowa caucuses — and reports of chaos in precincts, website glitches and coin flips to decide county delegates — are raising questions about accuracy of the count and winner.
This time it’s the Democrats, not the Republicans.
Even as Hillary Clinton trumpeted her Iowa win in New Hampshire on Tuesday, aides for Bernie Sanders said the eyelash-thin margin raised questions and called for a review. The chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party rejected that notion, saying the results are final.
At 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Iowa Democratic Party Chairwoman Andy McGuire announced that Clinton had eked out a slim victory, based on results from 1,682 of 1,683 precincts.
Voters from the final missing Democratic precinct tracked down party officials Tuesday morning to report their results. Sanders won that precinct, Des Moines precinct No. 42, by two delegate equivalents over Clinton.
The Iowa Democratic Party said the updated final tally of delegate equivalents for all the precincts statewide was:
That’s a 3.77-count margin between Clinton, the powerful establishment favorite who early on in the Democratic race was expected to win in a virtual coronation, and Sanders, a democratic socialist who few in Iowa knew much about a year ago.
Can you imagine what Tuesday must have been like to be a part of Team Clinton? In 2008, the presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton lost to a candidate that no one had really heard from before by the name of Barack Obama. Now in 2016, Clinton stands once again as the overwhelming presumptive Democrat nominee and faces a real challenge from a 74 year old socialist who was never supposed to be much of a factor, let alone have a chance to win.
Thank you. Iowa, thank you. Nine months ago, we came to this beautiful state. We had no political organization; we had no money; no name recognition. And we were taking on the most powerful political organization in the United States of America.
And tonight while the results are still not known, it looks like we are in a virtual tie.
And while the results are still not complete, it looks like we’ll have half of the Iowa delegates. I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Secretary Clinton, somebody — yep — and her organization for waging a very vigorous campaign.
And I want to thank Governor O’Malley. It’s never easy to lose. I’ve lost more than one campaign. But he should know that he contributed a whole lot to the dialogue, that he ran an issue-oriented campaign, and he won the respect of the American people. … If I think about what happened tonight, I think the people of Iowa have sent a very profound message to the political establishment, to the economic establishment, and, by the way, to the media establishment.
Sen. Marco Rubio Iowa Caucus Speech: Hammers Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton … Hillary Clinton is disqualified from being the President & Commander in Chief of the United States (VIDEO)
Ted Cruz may have won Iowa much to the surprise of the pundits and establishment, but Marco Rubio had just a strong and surprising showing as well. Rubio nearly passed Donald Trump and came in second. Following Sen. Marco Rubio’s strong third place finish in Iowa, Rubio spoke to his supporters, thanked them and put forth his vision if he is elected president of the United States.
“After 7 years of Barack Obama, we are not waiting any longer to take our country back. This is not a time for waiting … This is a time where we need a president that will truly preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Not one that undermines, attacks and ignores the Constitution of the United States.”
“In America there are only two ways forward for us now, we can be greater than we have ever been or we can be a great nation in decline. If Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton get elected, if they were to win we will become a great nation in decline.”
Check out the 3:06 mark of the video where Rubio calls out Hillary Clinton and states she is disqualified from becoming president of the United States:
“Hillary Clinton is disqualified from being the President of the United States because she stored classified information and sensitive information on her email server and because she thinks she is above the law. And Hillary Clinton can never be Commander in Chief because anyone who lies to the family of people who have lost their lives in the service of this country can never be Commander in Chief of the United States!”
Following his victory last night in the 2016 Iowa Caucus, Senator Ted Cruz took shots at the media and the political establishment while thanking his supporters. Last night in Iowa there was record turnout as Cruz won the most votes ever cast for any Republican primary winner in Iowa.
“Tonight the state of Iowa has spoken. Iowa has sent notice that the Republican nominee and next president of the United States will not be chosen by the media, will not be chosen by the Washington establishment, will not be chosen by the lobbyists, but will be chosen by the most incredible powerful force where all sovereignty resides in our nation … BY WE THE PEOPLE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!”
ONE OUT AFTER IOWA CAUCUS, IS THERE MORE TO COME …
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee has suspended his presidential campaign to be president. Following a poor showing in the Iowa Caucus and a campaign that just never got off the ground. Huckabee managed to only get 2% of the vote. One has to wonder who else is next? All of the candidates that finished below 5% in Iowa might want to think about throwing in the towel.
Mike Huckabee suspended his bid for the Republican nomination, ending a second run that overshadowed by other candidates in the former Arkansas governor’s social-conservative lane.
Huckabee’s announcement concludes a campaign that was not nearly as prominent as his previous run at the Republican nomination in 2008, where he won eight states, including the Iowa caucus.
In 2016, Huckabee struggled to consistently stay on the main stage in Republican presidential debates, never raised more than $15 million at one time, and failed to rally the same evangelical support he won in his last presidential run. One of the most conspicuous blows to his campaign came when Bob Vander Plaats endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz, denying Huckabee a critical ally in the contest to win over Iowa’s evangelicals.
GOP Iowa Caucuses: Cruz, Trump and Rubio in a 3-Person Race (Update: Ted Cruz Declared Winner in Iowa)
IOWA CAUCUS 2016: All night long its been nip and tuck between Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the GOP Iowa Caucus. Finally, the race has been called by FOX News … Sen. Ted Cruz has been declared the winner in Iowa!!! ABC News is calling the race as well.
Ted Cruz is the winner of the Iowa Republican caucuses, Fox News projects, beating front-runner Donald Trump in a victory that could shake up the primary race.
Trump finishes second, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio finishes a close third.
There was a record turn out tonight in Iowa and many thought had that occurred, Donald Trump would win the Iowa Caucus going away. Guess what, the pundits were incorrect again.
Supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas delivered a hard-fought upset win over businessman Donald Trump in the Iowa Republican caucuses Monday night, making good on his bet that a methodical campaign organization would eclipse the New Yorker’s media dominance in the first test of GOP voters.
With 99 percent of the precincts reporting, Cruz was besting Trump by more than 5,100 votes, with fellow senator Marco Rubio of Florida a close third. Cruz appeared to capitalize on deep support from religious and social conservatives and showed that old-fashioned retail politicking could overcome Trump’s massive political rallies in the Hawkeye state.
