Polls are open in Kentucky, and the pressure is on Hillary Clinton to do well, both here and in Oregon. Her supporters want her to finally push aside persistent rival Bernie Sanders, so she turn her attention to the general election and Republican candidate Donald Trump. (SOUNDBITE) DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE HILLARY CLINTON, SAYING: "So what Trump says about foreign policy is not just offensive it's dangerous." Clinton is already going after Trump, referring to him as a "loose cannon." But some Clinton allies say the continued presence of Sanders MAY damage her ability to take on Trump... and end up hurting her if she faces him in the November election. But Sanders supporters say he should keep fighting until the July convention, to push Clinton to the left and challenge her ties to Wall Street and support for free-trade deals. Analysts predict the race won't stop tonight in Kentucky and Oregon... thanks to continued strong support for Bernie Sanders.
