Former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg will enter the country’s first primary election Tuesday leading in the delegate count.

Iowa’s Democratic Party released the results of last week’s caucus which was saddled by confusion and chaos partially due to a faulty app.

Buttigieg took 14 of the 41 delegates up for grabs in Iowa, followed by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders with 12, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s eight. Former Vice President Joe Biden took six and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar has one delegate. No other candidate finished in the delegate count.

It will take 1,990 delegates to win the Democratic presidential nomination at
