Feel the Bern

Ütleme nii, et Bernie Sanders ja Hillary Clinton saavutasid võrdse tulemuse Iowas.

The Latest: Some Iowa Precincts Resort to Coin Flips

How close was the Iowa race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders? Democrats flipped coins in some precincts to determine how to award an extra county delegate, a rare but longstanding procedure to break ties.

Party rules call for a coin flip when support for candidates is even but a precinct has an odd number of delegates to award.

The Des Moines Register reports that Clinton won coin tosses at precincts in Davenport and Des Moines.

The newspaper says party officials ordered another coin flip to decide a dispute between the campaigns at an Ames precinct. Clinton won that toss, too.

Iowa Democratic Party spokesman Sam Lau noted that the flips were to determine county convention delegates, which are only fractions of the state delegates awarded to candidates.

Kui kulli ja kirja visatakse, siis antud kontekstis ei ole minu meelest tähtis, et kes võidab.  Bernie on pika tee tulnud ja Hillary tee Valgesse Majja pole sugugi enam nii kindel.
