Nevada is quickly becoming the main attraction in the presidential race. The Silver State holds Democratic caucuses on Saturday, the same day as South Carolina's Republican primary. The GOP candidates will then quickly pivot to Nevada for the Republican caucuses on Tuesday.

A new CNN poll shows Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders nearly tied in the Democratic race. Donald Trump holds a large lead on the GOP side, with Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz fighting for a distant second.

Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler is in Reno to cover the caucuses. 

"This is a caucus state - not a primary," says Adler. "And so turnout and organization will really matter. And on top of that, the Democrats allow same-day voter registration. So at this point, it really is anyone's guess - particularly in the Democratic race, and then on the Republican side, the race for second place."

Clinton and Sanders have each held campaign events in Reno in recent days. They'll both participate in a televised town hall tonight in Las Vegas.

Sanders has scheduled a rally in Sparks tomorrow afternoon.
