It's really close between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in the Iowa Democratic caucuses.

Sanders describes it as a "virtual tie." But, the Clinton campaign team is casting her performance as a win.

Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon told reporters, "we believe strongly that we won tonight." He's pointing to Clinton's capture of at least 22 delegates to the party's national convention to Sanders' 21, with one left to be decided.

Here are the latest results as 99 percent of precincts, 1,680 of 1,681 are reporting:

- Hillary Clinton, 700 - 50 percent
- Bernie Sanders, 695 - 50 percent
- Martin O'Malley, 8 - 1 percent
- Other, 0 - 0 percent
- Uncommitted, 0 - 0 percent

Martin O'Malley has ended his presidential campaign.
