The historic Iowa Caucus last night played out as interestingly as the entire Presidential Race thus far.

For starters, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton came in so close to a tie that the Democratic party has yet to declare an official winner. Even though Hillary’s team had initially declared a win, though the Democratic officials shut that party down, saying that Bern had actually tied. Some serious number crunching/counting will have to be done in order to declare on official winner.

On the Republican side of things, Ted Cruz trumped Donald Trump, receiving  27.7%. Second place went to Donald Trump, with Jeb Bush coming in dead last.

Twitter had a field day with memes mocking Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, who decided to suspend his campaign after receiving a mere 1.8% of the vote.  Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee also decided to throw in the towel.
