Max Armstrong talks about the opioid crisis, Nebraska's primary election and the House farm bill vote.

The CDC has new numbers on the opioid crisis, showing it's getting worse. Especially in many rural areas. State lawmakers have filed a lawsuit against the makers of oxycontin. 

Nebraska's primary voter turnout was light. Two women will run the Senate race against each other.

The House will vote on the farm bill tomorrow, but will be a challenge to pass. 

A house in Detroit sits next to the arena, and the city is considering condemning it.
