THE AP, Washington — The Iowa Democratic Party on Thursday released updated results of the Iowa caucuses, following the completion of a recount requested by the campaigns of Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg.

The party plans to certify the results on Saturday.

AP has reviewed the updated results and will not call a winner, given remaining concerns about whether the results as reported by the party are fully accurate.

In the new results, Buttigieg has 562.954 state delegate equivalents and Sanders has 562.021 state delegate equivalents out of 2,151 counted. That is a margin of 0.04 percentage points.

In Iowa, Buttigieg won 13 delegates to the Democratic National Convention, and Sanders won 12. Elizabeth Warren won 8, Joe Biden won 6 and Amy Klobuchar won 1.

A final delegate will be awarded to the candidate who wins the most state delegate equivalents. AP will update its tally of the national delegates won in Iowa with that final delegate on Saturday, once the Iowa Democratic Party formally votes to certify the results of the caucuses.
