ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Voters head to the polls in Lexington and Louisville Kentucky, Tuesday (May 17) for the state's primary. Hillary Clinton is under pressure to do well in Democratic nominating contests in Kentucky and Oregon on Tuesday so she can turn her attention to the general election and the mounting attacks on her being waged by Republican candidate Donald Trump. The continued presence in the race of Bernie Sanders - who remains a long shot to upset Clinton and win the Democratic nomination - is prompting concerns among Clinton allies that he will damage her ability to take on Trump and hurt the Democrat in the fall. But many supporters of Sanders are not worried about any ill effects of the U.S. senator remaining in the race, arguing that Trump is such a flawed candidate that Clinton will easily dispatch with him if she faces him in the Nov. 8 election.
