The Iowa Democratic Party projected that former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg would be awarded the most pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention from the Iowa caucuses, but Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders trailed only slightly behind him.

The state party projected that Buttigieg would get 14 national delegates, and that Sanders would get 12 national delegates. Also projected to be awarded delegates were Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, with eight pledged delegates, former Vice President Joe Biden, with six pledged delegates, and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, with one pledged delegate.

Nearly a week after the first contest of the election cycle, the IDP made corrections late Sunday to data from 55 precincts, which represents a small fraction — just 3% — of all precinct locations for this cycle’s Iowa caucuses.

The updated data did little to change where the candidates stood as of Thursday night, when the IDP had released data from 100% of precincts.
