Good Tuesday morning, and happy LAST PRIMARY DAY of the Election of the Century.
DRIVING THE DAY -- "New House Republican 'anti-poverty plan' repackages GOP proposals ," by John Bresnahan: "Speaker Paul Ryan ... and other House Republicans will travel to a drug rehab facility in Southeast D.C. to release a 35-page report from the GOP 'Task Force on Poverty, Opportunity, and Upward Mobility.' ... Ryan hopes these task-force reports will give Republican candidates and incumbents a platform to run on this fall even if GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump does not perform well at the top of the ticket." http://politi.co/1X8hTf0

TONIGHT'S TIMELINE - "Viewer's Guide: Hillary Clinton's ready for her big moment," by AP's Nancy Benac: "Grab some coffee and prepare for a long night ... Polls close at 8 p.m. EDT in New Jersey; 9 p.m. in New Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota; 10 p.m. in Montana; and 11 p.m. for the big prize of California. Without the benefit of exit polls, it will take longer to call races than otherwise would be the case." http://apne.ws/1RW5W4m
DRIVING THE CONVERSATION -- "Trump train derails on Capitol Hill," by Burgess Everett and Seung Min Kim: "[H]is attacks on federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel are sapping any goodwill he had accumulated in private meetings and phone calls with congressional Republicans. But now that House Speaker Paul Ryan and much of the party have endorsed Trump, Republicans are left with little room to maneuver other than decry his comments and hope people move on. That's not likely to happen anytime soon, with media attention rising and Trump refusing to back away from his attacks." http://politi.co/1VJqh3M
JOE SCARBOROUGH on "Morning Joe," to D.C. Republicans, re Trump: "You have to start calling him out TODAY. This is not where you can do the slow boil. ... Say you'll retract your endorsement of him TODAY ... or the United State Senate is in DANGER. ... The House of Representatives is in DANGER. ...
"Republicans: Call him out. Make him back down on the Muslim ban. Make him back down on this racist statement he's made about a man [the judge in a Trump University case] born in Indiana ... Or else you lose the Senate, you lose the House, you lose the presidency, you will lose your standing as a national party. It's that simple. ... He's going backwards. ... He appears to be spontaneously combusting over a civil lawsuit."
--CHUCK TODD, to Joe and Mika: "What has happened in the last five days ... there's something about this ... that's leaving a mark. ... I'm just confused: Where is the sense of urgency inside the Republican Party?"
--TOM BROKAW, on-set at 30 Rock: "It seems to me they're stuck with what they've got."
TOP TWEETS -- @FredVMalek: "Politics is game of addition not subtraction - Trump's attacks on Judge even more damaging and inexcusable than those against Gov. Martinez" ... @BenSasse : "Public Service Announcement: Saying someone can't do a specific job because of his or her race is the literal definition of 'racism'" ... @BuzzFeedBen: "Trump's whole reality is TV, and now TV is being less hospitable. That must be incredibly stressful."
FOR HISTORY: "APNewsAlert, 8:19 PM 6/6/2016 WASHINGTON (AP) - AP count: Hillary Clinton has commitments from delegates needed to become presumptive Democratic presidential nominee; will be first woman to top major party ticket" ...

INSIDE THE CAMPAIGNS -- "Trump Orders Surrogates to Intensify Criticism of Judge and Journalists," by Bloomberg's Kevin Cirilli, Michael C. Bender and Jennifer Jacobs: "An embattled Donald Trump urgently rallied his most visible supporters to defend his attacks on a federal judge's Mexican ancestry during a conference call on Monday in which he ordered them to question the judge's credibility and impugn reporters as racists. 'We will overcome,' Trump said ... 'And I've always won and I'm going to continue to win. And that's the way it is.' ...
"When former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer interrupted the discussion to inform Trump that his own campaign had asked surrogates to stop talking about the lawsuit in an e-mail on Sunday, Trump repeatedly demanded to know who sent the memo, and immediately overruled his staff. 'Take that order and throw it the hell out,' Trump said. Told the memo was sent by Erica Freeman, a staffer who circulates information to surrogates, Trump said he didn't know her.
"He openly questioned how the campaign could defend itself if supporters weren't allowed to talk. 'Are there any other stupid letters that were sent to you folks?' Trump said. 'That's one of the reasons I want to have this call, because you guys are getting sometimes stupid information from people that aren't so smart.' ...
"'The people asking the questions-those are the racists,' Trump said. 'I would go at 'em.' Suggesting a broader campaign against the media, Trump said the campaign should also actively criticize television reporters. 'I'd let them have it,' he said, referring to those who Trump portrayed as hypocrites." http://bloom.bg/1Pfwk9r ...

TICK-TOCK -- "Inside the #NeverTrump Candidacy that Almost Was," by National Review's Eliana Johnson: "It was enough, apparently, to spook the Trump campaign. Sources say that on Wednesday, influential supporters of the campaign, prompted by the campaign itself, began reaching out to the [RNC], to Kristol, and to [David] French, attempting to quash the bid. One Trump operative reached French's wife's family in Tennessee and told them, according to French, that he was 'instructed to call and deliver a message that the race would be very difficult for me.'" http://bit.ly/214Kssl

'Travesty of justice': International reaction, recall effort target judge in Stanford campus attack": "That a young white man of means would receive the benefit of the doubt after such a crime has triggered an eruption of fury, colliding with powerful national movements to curb campus sexual assault and to reveal deeply rooted racial bias in the U.S. legal system." http://bayareane.ws/1X8qXAx
--San Francisco Chronicle, bottom of p. 1, "Anger over Stanford rape case," by Evan Sernoffsky: "A Santa Clara County judge's decision to sentence a former Stanford University swimmer to a relatively light six months in jail for the sexual assault of a drunken and unconscious woman at a fraternity party has sparked national outrage and an online campaign to remove him from the bench." http://bit.ly/1X8rgLG
