NEW YORK (CNN) — Democrat Hillary Clinton loaned her presidential campaign $5 million in January, the New York senator said Wednesday.
"I loaned the campaign $5 million dollars from my money," she said at a press conference at her Arlington, Virginia headquarters. "I loaned it because I believe in this campaign and I think the results last night proved the wisdom of my investment."
Earlier Wednesday, Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson confirmed reports Clinton had lent her campaign money in January, and said "The loan illustrates Sen. Clinton's commitment to this effort and to ensuring that our campaign has the resources it needs to compete and win across this nation."

Ha Ha.Desperate times require desperate measures!
So much for the coronation of Hillary.Never expected such a challenge from Obama.She is the brand name and is still unable to put him away.This shows her inherent weakness in her abilities.People can see through her dishonesty and lack of charisma.'35 years of' experience' my foot.
Hillary is able to get the diversity of the nation to vote. She doesn't see the country only in black and white. She is the only one experienced enough, determined enough, and smart enough to become president. She doesn't go half way on the issues she goes all the way. Health care for ALL! It takes money to get the vote out for Obama, it takes issues to get the vote out for Hillary.
Yeah, this is not good for Hillary Clinton. Obama raised $32 million in January, and he's expecting $30 million in February. If she doesn't do well on Saturday and Tuesday, she's done.
Let's all Bash Hillary. It's so much fun.
John McCain has taken out 2 life insurance plans and 10 Million in Loans.
But of course, I wouldn't expect "the educated elite" that votes for Obama to know that.
By the way CNN:
JACK NICHOLSON ENDORSES HILLARY CLINTON!
Of course, no coverage on CNN, because this is not as important as a headliner story such as Hulk Hogan endorsing Obama.
Shame on you cnn.
Can Hillary find a place in Barack's cabinet as director of Health and Human Services?
YES SHE CAN!
WOMEN CAN'T LEAD THIS COUNTRY – I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR A WOMAN – GO BARACK!
Hillary, that doesn't sound like sound fiscal policy.
Clearly Obama is our person to manage this economy.
Ok anthoner Mitt Romney. And were did it get him? NO WERE AND OUT OF THE RACE!!!!
Best of luck to Hillary! From one mama to another! Chelsea speak up for ur mom!
$$$$$$$$ I can't believe the drug companies and other lobbiest are not giving Hillary anymore money ... Seems so unfair I'm sure she would pay you back ... somehow.... isn;t that why they contribute money to begin with
Good Luck Hillary
Why is it if Senator Clinton loans her campaign it is viewed as her committment to the cause while if Mitt Romney gifts his own money to his campaign it is viewed as trying to buy the election?
What weak excuse- "The loan illustrates Sen. Clinton's commitment"?????
How can one manage the national economy and cannot manage her own campaign??? I am puzzled by the irony!
I think it is very upseting to know that she spent 5 million dollars just to compete with a little known Senator. She reminds me of Mitt Romney; trying to buy an election. I will not vote for her in the PA primaries.
Meanwhile, Obama receives all of his donations from individuals. How can Clinton be running a campaign for the common people while still donating 5 million to herself?
Clinton is amazing! She is smart and would be the best President this country has ever had. I will vote for her when able-I have waited for a women president since the mid-seventies. Too bad Obama has to run now when we finally have a capable wonderful female...
I donated to Hillary's campaign today. Keep up the good work Hillary, you're doing awesome for all you're up against! (i.e. media, celebrities, sexism to name a few)
Obama sees the country as black and white
Hillary sees it as haves and have nots
Obama takes your money
Hillary uses her own
hm....i'd vote Hillary!
Wolf, John King is biased and incompetent. John, please lighten up, not only blacks 're voting for Obama, whites, young people 're all voting including some Latinos as well. Stop the race divide comment.
These Clinton-hating comments are sickening. People earn money, even while in public life. Poor people can't make it to Washington's high chambers... Obama obviously made a fortune too, while a "public servant"...
I don't like to Hillary bash, since its like shooting fish in a barrel. But if our luck turns, and she is the dem. nominee, then the Republicans will certainly jump on the bandwagon.
I'm not going to join these other mean comment-makers and "pile on" Mrs. Clinton.
I wouldn't want her to start crying again :)
Go Hillary! At least she was WILLING to loan her campaign the money... most would be selfish and drop out.
Great Job last night! The money will keep coming, NO WORRIES! PA has your back!
If you love Hillary as much as I do, please contribute whatever you can at hillaryclinton.com. She's the only one for us.
