In the meantime, interested in learning which candidates have the most delegates? Bloomberg is keeping track. With only the Iowa caucuses settled, Hillary Clinton has 29 delegates on the Democratic side while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has 21. (The first Democrat to secure 2,387 delegates will win the nomination.) For Republicans, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) leads with eight delegates, Donald Trump and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) each have seven and Ben Carson has three. Jeb Bush, Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) and Carly Fiorina each have one delegate. (Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky also has one, but suspended his campaign last week.) A GOP candidate needs 1,237 delegates to secure the nomination.
