The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing federal, state and local governments to take drastic measures. And in Nevada, Gov. Steve Sisolak did something never done before: he ordered all casinos in the state to shut down for 30 days.

What are you willing to do to save your own life and the lives of those you love? We absolutely must take this step for every Nevadan’s health and safety.

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak has ordered all non-essential businesses in the state to shut down for 30 days in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. That includes bars, dine-in restaurants, retail stores, hotels, salons and barbershops. The closure even extends to the state’s gaming industry. Included on the list of non-essential are all casinos — which were shuttered last night. To help us break it all down is KUNR’s Paul Boger.

About 200 people went to the GOP viewing party to wait for Tuesday's midterm election results at the Grand Sierra Resort. Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Adam Laxalt gave his concession speech after losing to Democrat Steve Sisolak. Laxalt called Sisolak just before he took the stage, promising to offer any help he could to Nevada's new governor.

The race for Nevada's next governor has drawn a lot of attention. Not only will the election determine who will lead the state for the next four years, but it may also help decide key down-ballot races as well. KUNR's Paul Boger caught up with Democratic nominee for governor Steve Sisolak at a recent campaign event in Northern Nevada to see how the campaign is going and where the candidate stands on certain issues.

The 2018 Midterms are just 30 days away, and office-seekers in Nevada are crisscrossing the state working to drum up support ahead of the November election.

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. Her appearance comes at a crucial time for state Democrats who have to decide just how progressive they want to be in the run-up to this November's general election.

The results are in and Republicans and Democrats have selected their nominees in the race to be Nevada’s next governor. Reno Public Radio's Paul Boger reports.

Early voting has begun in the Nevada primary, but that doesn’t mean candidates have stopped campaigning. When KUNR last spoke with Clark Commissioner and Democratic Candidate for Governor Steve Sisolak, he explained that increasing access to healthcare, expanding economic development and improving schools were his top priorities.

With just three weeks until the primary, Nevada’s top Democratic candidates for governor met in Las Vegas Monday night for the first gubernatorial debate of the 2018 midterm elections. Clark County Commissioners Steve Sisolak and Chris Giunchigliani sparred over several issues, including gun control, taxes, economic development, and raising the state’s minimum wage.
