Hillary Clinton's campaign has claimed victory in the Iowa caucus against Bernie Sanders with official final results still outstanding in the extremely close presidential nominations contest.

The Iowa Democratic Party, however, declined to rule in the race, placing Clinton slightly ahead of Sanders but saying there were still outstanding results in one precinct.

According to live results from the Associated Press, Clinton has 49.9% of the vote, while Sanders has 49.5 per cent.

Party chair Andy McGuire said Clinton has been awarded 699.57 state delegate equivalents and that Sanders had been awarded 695.49.
