and a cat died-- and four people were displaced by the fire. the cause of the fire is under investigation. ### eight years ago, hillary clinton won the nevada caucus, but in the end president obama won the highest number of deligates in the state. this time around, clinton is taking nothing for granted. tonight, her one-on-one conversation with kolo 8 news now's terri russell. a warm welcome from supporters here in northern nevada who are backing hillary clinton for president. she asked them this afternoon at truckee meadows community college to get to the caucuses this saturday. hillary clinton:it is great to be here in the heart of reno, this community college. mr. president, thank you for having us here. she covered a laundry list of topics. from the high costs of prescription drugs, clinton: i'm going to work, until i get, authority for medicare to negotiate for lower prices. to gun control. she talked about the opening at the u.s. supreme court and what the

it's something i asked her about in our one-on-one interview after her speech. clinton: you know justice scalia is known for his real devotion to the constitution. and look what the republican senators are doing, they are bending the constitution instead of doing what they should. during her speech she talked frequently about solar energy, in her conversation with me she was dismayed at the recent nevada puc decision to go along with n-v energy's request to stop incentives for current and future home owners who install solar panels on houses. clinton: then all of a sudden you come in and say, just kidding? we are going to charge you, we are going to put extra burdens on you. i think that is totally wrong. what is totally right as far as this crowd is concerned, is hillary clinton as the next president of the united states. at truckee meadows
11:03 pm
one of the last polls taken in the silver state showed clinton with a large margin over senator sanders. but taking those polls is tough in a caucus state, because anyone can change his or her mind on saturday, once they hear arguments at the caucus. ### clinton also made an appearance at the university of nevada. there... she spoke with a group of mostly women ,about women's issues. she said she supports planned parenthood, and a woman's right to choose. she says she thinks both are at risk-- under a republican administration. supporters like nevada democratic assembly- woman amber joiner says: hillary is the person to protect women's rights in the upcoming election. "the young women also need to make sure that we pick a president who are going to support those gains they have made in women's reproductive health, for example. and also someone who is going to focus on our families. a lot of the people in the room are just about to start their families and they were seriously concerned

having to quit their jobs if they cannot afford it." clinton also discussed a need for early childhood care. she says getting kid's brains stimulated, before they get to school, will prepare them to learn before stepping foot in a classroom.### and in a light-hearted moment at t-m-c-c, when clinton talked about her favorite radio ad. she said the annoucer joked about a trained dog that would bark--- when a politician, didn't tell the truth. and then she talked about the republican presidential candidates. "we need to get that dog and follow them around and everytime they say these things like, 'oh the great recession was caused by too much regulation.' arf arf arf arf you know. i think we could cut right through a lot of their claims." her harshest critic is donald trump. he calls clinton the worst secretary of state in u-s history. clinton is not directly responding to trump's statements. instead, she's sharing stories like the one we
