DeSantis camp says media called Iowa GOP presidential caucus for Trump before some people had voted

Breaking News

Former President Donald Trump decisively won the Iowa Republican presidential caucus on Monday, but the camp of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has said that the media called the race for Trump before some Iowans had even voted yet.

“I spoke before approx 400 Iowans today at a caucus site and DeSantis won. However, they were getting news alerts of a ‘trump victory’ before speeches concluded or voting began. The media wants to taint this process and it’s sad for America. Wake up everyone,” James Uthmeier tweeted.

The Hill reported that a spokesperson for the Never Back Down super PAC claimed that while Florida first lady Casey DeSantis was talking at a caucus precinct, attendees began getting alerts that Trump had won the Iowa contest.

“Same thing happened to me. Zero votes had been cast, I hadn’t even given my speech, and the corporate media was calling the race via push notifications,” Jeremy Redfern tweeted.

“At the site where @RonDeSantis was speaking in Dubuque, people were still waiting to be checked in when the media started making calls. No one had even voted. It’s extremely disrespectful to the voters,” Bryan Griffin tweeted.

According to the Associated Press, with 95% of the vote in, Trump had earned 51% while DeSantis had a bit more than 21%, Nikki Haley had a little over 19%, and Vivek Ramaswamy was a little under 8%. After the caucus, Ramaswamy announced that he was endorsing Trump.

Iowa’s 40 delegates will be divided among GOP candidates based on the proportion of the caucus vote that they win.
