Bernie Sanders said that he may contest Iowa Democratic Party’s decision to award Hillary Clinton the victory in the state’s caucus.

In a statement, Iowa Democratic Party Chair Dr. Andy McGuire said, “The results tonight are the closest in Iowa Democratic caucus history. Hillary Clinton has been awarded 699.57 state delegate equivalents, Bernie Sanders has been awarded 695.49 state delegate equivalents, Martin O’Malley has been awarded 7.68 state delegate equivalents and uncommitted has been awarded .46 state delegate equivalents. We still have outstanding results in one precinct (Des Moines—42), which is worth 2.28 state delegate equivalents. We will report that final precinct when we have confirmed those results with the chair.”

In a brief interview with MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt, Sen. Sanders said, “Honestly, we just got off the plane and I — we don’t know enough to say anything about it.”
