The Des Moines precinct had not reported as of early Tuesday morning, but it's worth only 2.28 state delegate equivalents.

"As I stand here tonight, breathing a big sigh of relief — thank you, Iowa," Clinton said.

Hillary Clinton touted the narrow margin as a win, while Bernie Sanders said the near tie was a victory over traditional political establishments.

"Nine months ago, we came to this beautiful state, we had no political organization, we had no money, we had no name recognition and we were taking on the most powerful political organization in the United States of America," Sanders said.

Meanwhile, Martin O'Malley — the third Democrat in the race — suspended his campaign after pulling in less than 1 percent of the vote. (Video via Martin O'Malley for President)
