The chairman of the Democratic National Committee is calling for a “recanvass” of the results of the Iowa caucuses.

Party leader Tom Perez tweeted Thursday that “enough is enough” after three days of technical issues and delays.

Following the Iowa Democratic Party's release of new results late Thursday night, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg leads Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by two state delegate equivalents out of 2,152 counted.

However, there is evidence the party has not accurately tabulated some of its results, including those released late Thursday that the party reported as complete.

The Associated Press is unable to declare a winner.
