Ky. voters pick GOP GOV nominee today; TPA/TPP backers pitch national security; Clinton relied on Blumenthal; Jindal launches exploratory; Rep. Guinta on the ropes; and why even conservative states are reducing prison sentences.
Obama to ban transfer of military equipment to police depts; Senate moves on trade; deadlines loom on highway bill, PATRIOT Act; Fed could move on rates as early as June; Graham to announce, Kasich close?
