Bernie Sanders Says He Wants a Partial Recanvass of Caucus Results
Democratic Presidential Candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders’ campaign is asking for a “partial recanvass” of the results of last week’s Iowa caucuses.
Today is the deadline for candidates to ask the Iowa Democratic Party to recanvass the results. A recanvass is not a recount, but a check of the vote count to ensure the results were added correctly.
The state party released updated results on Sunday showing Pete Buttigieg leading Sanders by two state delegate equivalents out of 2,152 counted.
The Associated Press remains unable to declare a winner because it believes the results may not be fully accurate and are still subject to potential revision.
All the bridges damaged during last spring’s massive flooding in Nebraska have now been reopened.
The Nebraska Department of Transportation said the Nebraska 13 bridge near Hadar in northeast Nebraska reopened Friday. The bridge about four miles north of Norfolk was the final one of 27 bridges damaged during last spring’s flooding to reopen.
The flooding last March caused the closure of 3,300 miles of highway in Nebraska. All of the highways affected by the flooding have been reopened.
The Transportation Department says it spent $2.8 million to replace the Hadar bridge.
Nebraska lawmakers who want to minimize partisanship when they redraw the state's political boundaries will make one final push to change the process before it begins anew next year, but creating an independent commission to guide their work appears to be a lost cause. Barring any changes, the process that’s set to begin in the 2021 legislative session will follow the same rules that led to a bitter struggle between Republicans and Democrats during the last redistricting in 2011.
