Sen. Amy Klobuchar emerged from the Iowa caucuses Tuesday on track to finish in fifth place, a showing that keeps her in contention for the next contest in New Hampshire even as it casts doubt on her ongoing viability in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

With more than a third of the precincts still not counted, Klobuchar trailed a quartet of race leaders led by former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a Midwestern rival vying for the same slice of moderate Democrats.
