DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg says he needs to raise $13 million to stay competitive through the 14-state Super Tuesday contests on March 3.

That's a tricky financial picture despite the former South Bend mayor's strong finish in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Buttigieg reported spending more than twice in January what he raised in January, hoping surprising finishes in the leadoff caucus and primary states would open the fundraising floodgates.

Here are the latest results out of New Hampshire.

The finish at the top in New Hampshire looked a lot like the finish last week in Iowa, this time with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders leading the way and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg finishing a close second.

But from the No. 3 spot on down, there were some pretty big surprises, including the rise of Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and disappointing finishes for Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.

Here are six takeaways from what happened last night:

The results from Monday's caucuses are too close for The Associated Press to call. In figures released by the state party, Buttigieg leads Bernie Sanders by 0.09 percentage points.

"Thank you Iowa! "

Delays in reporting the results of the Iowa caucuses forced the candidates, including Pete Buttigieg, to speak to their supporters without knowing the results. 

Buttigieg spoke in Des Moines at Drake University shortly after 12am Tuesday (Eastern time.) The remarks  came  close to a victory speech without declaring victory.

Here is some of what he had to say.

The final pre-caucus survey from vaunted Iowa pollster J. Ann Selzer was supposed to come out on Saturday night, but the Des Moines Register, which sponsors the poll along with CNN and Mediacom, says a candidate’s name may have been left out in at least one interview.

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Pete Buttigieg finds himself in a place that he could hardly have contemplated when he began running for president a year ago: He likely cannot finish lower than second in the Iowa caucuses if he wants to advance in the Democratic presidential nominating campaign.

Each of the top four candidates within reach of the lead in Iowa faces his or her own version of the challenge.

But the 38-year-old former mayor of a midsize Midwestern city has a particularly high burden of proof in his bid to win the right to face President Donald Trump.
