The first presidential nominating event of the 2020 election cycle took place in Iowa on February 3, 2020. Both the Democratic and Republican parties held caucuses. Given its first-in-the-nation status, Iowa received increased attention from both campaigning candidates and the media.
The results of the Iowa Democratic caucuses were initially delayed due to problems with a new mobile application developed for the caucuses and tabulation errors. Following a partial recanvass and recount, the Iowa Democratic Party projected on February 27, 2020, that former Mayor Pete Buttigieg would receive 14 pledged delegates, Sen. Bernie Sanders 12, Sen. Elizabeth Warren 8, former Vice President Joe Biden 6, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar 1.
Iowa held a general election for president of the United States on November 3, 2020, along with 49 other states and the District of Columbia. In the last 10 presidential elections, the Democratic candidate won the state in six elections and the Republican candidate won the state four times. Over those 10 elections, Iowa has voted for the eventual winner eight times.
