During our series, "Priced Out: The Housing Crunch," we've looked at the ways rising housing costs have affected various groups within the community, and we've delved into options moving forward.

Now, we're going to look at something a little different.

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.

Nevada’s Republican State Treasurer Dan Schwartz describes himself as a practical conservative. Over the past four years he has been an outspoken critic of Governor Brian Sandoval, the $750 million room tax for the Raider’s stadium in Las Vegas and the adoption of the Commerce Tax. Now as a candidate for governor, Schwartz says he wants to completely overhaul of the state’s public education system starting with funding for education savings accounts.

Today, some of Reno’s largest hotel casinos are located miles from the city center.  But they were once confined to a much smaller area, as Alicia Barber explains in this episode of “Time & Place.”

Unlike Las Vegas, Reno never had a strip, a part of town made up entirely of casinos. But it did have the “red line,” a virtual border that surrounded a four-block area just south of the railroad tracks. Only casinos inside the line could offer an unlimited number of slot machines and table games.

The housing supply in Northern Nevada is far below demand, which has led to a rapid rise in costs.

Many are calling for more development, but builders in the community say they’re unable to keep up.
