(CNN) – The Iowa Republican Party pushed back on a report from a caucus-goer suggesting a vote discrepancy at his caucus site allocated an additional 20 votes to Mitt Romney.
Iowa GOP Chairman Matt Strawn said he does not expect the results of the two-week certification process to change Tuesday's outcome. Romney won the caucuses by eight votes.
"Iowa GOP officials have been in contact with Appanoose County Republican officials tonight and do not have any reason to believe the final, certified results of Appanoose County will change the outcome of Tuesday's vote," Strawn said in a statement Thursday.
Edward True, who attended a caucus in the county, told CNN affiliate KCCI, his notes indicate Romney received two votes at the site, not the 22 votes shown on the Iowa GOP website.
But a spokeswoman for the state party told KCCI True is not a precinct captain or county chairperson and therefore has no business discussing the election results.
"Iowa GOP rules provide for a two-week certification process for each of the 1,774 precincts. The Iowa GOP will announce the final, certified results of the 2012 Iowa Causes following this process. Out of respect to the candidates involved, party officials we will not respond to every rumor, innuendo or allegation during the two week process," Strawn said in the release.
