New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley is downplaying concerns of potential issues in the state primary next Tuesday, as delays continue around the reporting of Iowa's primary caucus results.

On this morning's edition of The Exchange on NHPR, Buckley said New Hampshire has a completely different system.

"We have obviously a paper trail as well with paper ballots," Buckley said. "So people should have complete confidence in what's happening in New Hampshire until we really hear exactly what's going on in Iowa. I don't think that anyone should be jumping ahead."

Buckley also said he didn't think there was any question that the New Hampshire primary will be "100 percent perfect."
