Nearly four million voters went to the polls in California Tuesday, to help narrow a crowded field of office seekers ahead of the November general election. To help us break down that primary, KUNR’s Political Reporter Paul Boger joins us now to talk about the results.

Nevada gubernatorial candidate, Democrat Chris Giunchigliani has positioned herself as the progressive choice this election cycle. She has taken a firm stance opposing the state’s embattled school voucher program, known as Education Savings Accounts. She’s also calling for tougher gun laws.

The 2018 California Primaries are less than a week away, and a slew of Republicans and Democrats are vying to make it on to the November general election ballot. KUNR’s Paul Boger reached out Alexi Koseff – a political reporter with the Sacramento Bee – to break down next week’s election.

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.

When Las Vegas businessman Jared Fisher announced his plan to run for governor last year, he did so by riding his bike across the state. Since then, the political outsider has faced an uphill battle to gain traction ahead of next month's Republican Primary.
