Iowa Democratic Party officials are reviewing caucus results that delivered a razor-thin victory to Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders – and making changes as errors are found, the Des Moines Register reports.

"Both the Sanders and Clinton campaigns have flagged a very small number of concerns for us, and we are looking at them all on a case-by-case basis," Iowa Democratic Party spokesman Sam Lau told the Register Friday.

The final tally the state party announced Tuesday showed a difference of 3.77 state delegates equivalents.

One discrepancy involves a precinct where caucus-goers reported Sanders had won 19 county delegates and Clinton 7; party officials had said the final tally was Sanders 18 and Clinton 8. Reports of discrepancies in other precincts are still being reviewed, the Register reports.

"Hillary Clinton won Iowa. End of story," Matt Paul, Clinton's Iowa campaign director, wrote in a blog post Friday, noting that even if Sanders won all of his challenges, the bump wouldn't overcome Clinton's win margin.

Republican National Committee spokesman Fred Brown mocked the furor.

"If you’re still spending the Friday after the caucuses trying to convince people you won, you know it was a loss," he tells the Register.
