As partial results of Sunday's highly anticipated referendum trickled in, Greeks appeared to have overwhelmingly rejected the terms of a bailout deal proposed by the country's creditors.
Greece's Interior Ministry announced on Sunday night that more than 61 percent of participants are expected to have voted against the deal. No exit polls were conducted during the vote, Reuters reports.
Earlier this year, Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign lost count of its experts.
In the months before she began her second run for the White House, Clinton spent hours quizzing economists, lawyers, educators and activists about everything from executive compensation to the latest research on lead paint.
By last fall, the number of experts she had interviewed hit two hundred and her team stopped keeping track.
"It was like I hadn't left Harvard," Roland Fryer, an economist at the university, said of his meeting with Clinton to discuss successful charter school practices.

Greece lurched into uncharted territory and an uncertain future in Europe's common currency Sunday after voters overwhelmingly rejected demands by international creditors for more austerity measures in exchange for a bailout of its bankrupt economy.
Results showed 61 percent voted "no," compared with 38 percent for "yes," with 97 percent of the vote counted.
