Pete Buttigieg claims victory in Iowa caucuses, though no results have been released

Hey, who needs pesky numbers to win anymore?

Democratic hopeful Pete Buttigieg declared victory in the Iowa caucuses early Tuesday, despite a botched election process that delayed the release of the state’s results.

“So, we don’t know all the results,” Buttigieg told hundreds of supporters at a rally in Des Moines. “But, we know, by the time it is all said and done, Iowa you have shocked the nation. Because, by all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious.”
