|Accept it, Bernie.|
BREAKING: Hillary Clinton wins Democratic caucuses in Iowa.— The Associated Press (@AP) February 2, 2016
Hillary Clinton narrowly won the Democratic caucuses in Iowa, outpacing a surprisingly strong challenge from Bernie Sanders to claim the first victory in the 2016 race for president.
The former secretary of state, senator from New York and first lady edged past the Vermont senator in a race the Iowa Democratic Party called the closest in its caucus history.
The Iowa Democratic Party said Tuesday that it would not do any recount of the close results. Sanders spokesman Ted Devine said his campaign does not have "any plan or intention" to challenge the results, citing Sanders comments from Monday that the race appears to have ended in "a virtual tie."To recap: The Iowa Democratic Party has finalized the results, no recount will occur, and several major news organizations have called it for Clinton.
However, as of now, there's still been no official concession from Senator Sanders after his narrow loss in Iowa. Even this morning on Today, the senator at first seemed to accept the loss before backpedaling and suggesting that he might contest the results. Huh?
Do you really think the news media would let Clinton get away with this sort of stuff had she barely lost? Hah!
With all due respect, Bernie...it's time to gracefully concede the Iowa caucuses to Hillary.
Because she won.
