Biden Adviser Raises Questions About Iowa Caucus Over App  Problems

(Bloomberg) -- A senior adviser to Joe Biden’s campaign raised questions about the results of the Iowa Democratic caucuses, where the former vice president is currently in fourth place.

In an interview on CNN Wednesday, senior adviser Symone Sanders pointed to problems with an app used to tabulate precinct results.

Pressed by CNN anchor Brianna Keilar over whether this meant she was contesting the reported results, Sanders demurred, saying she has not “analyzed the back ends of the data.”

When Keilar noted that this was the kind of remark that Democrats have criticized Trump for making, Sanders said she was not disputing the results, just raising “legitimate questions.”

“I guess we’ll have to take the Iowa Democratic Party at their word,” she said.
