OFF TO THE RACES: Six things to watch in Kentucky and Oregon

NBC’s Perry Bacon Jr. lays out six things to watch in the primaries tonight in Oregon and Kentucky.

After a big analysis of voting statistics, POLITICO says that Trump isn't bringing in new general election voters -- he's just driving traditional general election voters to the primary for the first time.

Hillary Clinton holds a slim national lead over Donald Trump in a general election matchup in the latest NBC News/SurveyMonkey tracking poll.

Our new NBC News|SurveyMonkey tracking poll shows that a majority of GOP voters say they trust Trump over Paul Ryan when it comes to leading the party.

The Wall Street Journal does a deep dive on the electorate in Pennsylvania.

John Kasich and Ben Sasse both say again they are ruling out a third party bid.

CLINTON: Alex Seitz-Wald notes that Hillary Clinton's choices for the vice presidency are limited by the makeup of the Senate.

Bill Clinton hinted at a role in the "economic business" of his wife's White House if she's elected.

From the New York Times: "Two of the Democratic Party’s most loyal constituencies, labor and environmentalists, are clashing over an effort to raise tens of millions of dollars for an ambitious voter turnout operation aimed at defeating Donald J. Trump in the November election. The rift developed after some in the labor movement, whose cash flow has dwindled and whose political clout has been increasingly imperiled, announced a partnership last week with a wealthy environmentalist, Tom Steyer, to help bankroll a new fund dedicated to electing Democrats. That joint initiative enraged members of the nation’s biggest construction unions, already on edge about the rising influence of climate-change activists."

SANDERS: The New York Times looks at how some of Sanders' positions have become a playbook for Trump.

TRUMP: NBC's Alex Jaffe is now hiring a veteran pollster after previously dismissing the need for one.

There are still some conservatives hoping to stop Trump at the convention, writes the Washington Post. How? "Veteran Republican campaign operatives familiar with convention planning are offering to educate delegates on how they can act as free agents, even if the Republican National Committee insists that delegates adhere to the results of their state primary. Some even talk about convening somewhere other than the convention site."

The Washington Post delves into his complicated relationship with women and the "Trump girl" who disputes the New York Times account of their meeting.

He now says he never pursued Princess Diana romantically.

Trump says Obama's directives on transgender individuals should be rescinded.
