The Iowa Democratic Party on Wednesday released results from 97% of the precincts that caucused on Monday, following a delay in reporting due to a software error from a vote-tallying app.

Where it stands: The results show that Pete Buttigieg has earned the highest percentage of delegates thus far — just — at 26.2%, followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders at 26.1%, Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 18.2% and Joe Biden at 15.8%.

The big picture: IDP Chairman Troy Price apologized for the reporting failures on Tuesday, calling the delay "unacceptable" and assuring that there will be a thorough, independent review. He explained that the party was seeking to release more data than ever before during this year's caucuses, and that a coding error with a new reporting app caused much of the dysfunction.

Between the lines: The Iowa caucuses do not end in a winner-take-all situation for the 41 delegates up for grabs. Candidates will carry their delegate totals into New Hampshire, and will likely market them as victories for their respective campaigns.

Delta CEO Ed Bastian on Friday told CNN that he believes the Trump administration should move to require the use of face masks during air travel amid a surge in coronavirus cases.

The big picture: Delta already requires passengers to wear masks during its flights, but Bastian says it can be difficult to enforce that directive if passengers refuse — and he's not sure if other airlines would be on board.

President Trump's outdoor campaign rally in Portsmouth, N.H., slated to take place on Saturday, was postponed on Friday due to weather from Tropical Storm Fay, a senior White House official confirmed to Axios.

The state of play: Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters on Air Force One that the event would take place in "a week or two" instead. The outdoor rally — which had encouraged the use of face masks — was scheduled after sparse attendance at Trump's indoor comeback to the campaign trail in Tulsa.
