Pete Buttigieg has pulled ahead of Bernie Sanders in delegates to the Democratic National Convention after the Associated Press updated its tally Friday.

Buttigieg now has 13 delegates to Sanders’ 12. Other candidates receiving delegates: Elizabeth Warren, 8; Joe Biden, 6, and Amy Klobuchar, 1.
Buttigieg and Sanders had been tied at 11 delegates each in the AP count.

The AP has yet to allocate one delegate because of irregularities in the caucus counting.

The Iowa Democratic Party said Friday it was extending the deadline for campaigns to contest the results until 12 noon Central Time on Monday.
