With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: President Trump used an Indiana rally Thursday to soothe conservative fears that he’s going to make too many concessions to the North Koreans. “I think it’s going to be a very big success,” Trump said of the June 12 summit in Singapore with Kim Jong Un. “But my attitude is: If it isn’t, it isn’t. Okay? If it isn’t, it isn’t. … You have to (say) that, because you don’t know.” Everyone is excited about the homecoming of the three American prisoners, but there’s growing anxiety in the national security firmament that the president might be too hungry for a big win. Trump has appeared intoxicated at times by the possibility he could win the Nobel Peace Prize and relishes the chants of “Nobel” that have become standard fare at his rallies. He’s also been ratcheting up expectations that history will be made at his summit.

With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: Republican members of the House fared especially poorly Tuesday in primaries across four states, offering fresh evidence that this fall will bring another change election and a new batch of outsiders promising to shake up Washington. North Carolina Rep. Robert Pittenger was felled by former Baptist pastor Mark Harris despite a massive spending advantage, an outcome that caught D.C. Republicans off guard. Harris portrayed the third-term lawmaker as a creature of “the swamp” and relentlessly hammered him over his March vote for the $1.3 trillion spending bill. Pittenger is the first incumbent of either party to be forced out of Congress this year. In the primary to take on Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly (D), wealthy businessman Mike Braun won an upset over two GOP congressmen, Todd Rokita and Luke Messer, who have been rivals since college and spent months beating the tar out of each other.
