Des Moines - Hillary Clinton's campaign team is casting her performance in the Iowa caucuses as a win, even though she is separated from rival Bernie Sanders by just a few hundred votes.

Clinton spokesperson Brian Fallon tells reporters that, "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.

Clinton spokesperson Jennifer Palmieri says: "We feel like we have great momentum going into New Hampshire. This was a very hard fought state."

The Associated Press is not declaring a winner in the Iowa caucuses at this time because of the closeness of the race.
