Mayor Pete, Bernie Sanders Pull Away in Iowa: Latest Odds

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg has finished strong in the Iowa Caucus following Tuesday's debacle as results began trickling in 24 hours later.   The payout would be $80 for every $10 bet to win the Democratic nominee

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders also showed strong numbers in Iowa.  He will pay $14 for every $10 bet to win the Democratic nominee.

Not all numbers were in as of Tuesday evening.

The results followed 24 hours of chaos as technical issues marred the contest, forcing state officials to apologize and raising questions about Iowa’s traditional place atop the presidential primary calendar.

It was too early to call a winner based on the initial results, but Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar were trailing in the tally of State Delegate Equivalents, according to data released for the first time by the state Democratic Party nearly 24 hours after voting concluded. The results reflected 62% of precincts in the state.

Buttigieg, the 38-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, becomes the first openly gay candidate to earn presidential primary delegates. His early strength reflects his aggressive political pursuit of rural and small-town voters, including some Republicans, who prefer a more moderate approach to address the nation’s political problems.

“We don’t know all of the numbers, but we know this much: A campaign that started a year ago with four staff members, no name recognition, no money, just a big idea — a campaign that some said should have no business even making this attempt, has taken its place at the front of this race,” Buttigieg declared, his voice filled with emotion, while campaigning in next-up New Hampshire.
