On the same day President Donald Trump visited Las Vegas for the state Republican convention, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren headlined the Democratic event in Reno.

More than 320,000 Nevadans participated in Tuesday's primaries to decide which candidates will move on to the November general election ballot. KUNR's Bree Zender spoke with our Senior Reporter Paul Boger to break down some of those results.
