Clinton raises $4 million in day after Super Tuesday

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign announced Thursday it had raised $4 million online in the first 24 hours after the Super Tuesday contests.

"We are gratified for this tremendous outpouring of support," Clinton Campaign Internet Director Peter Daou said in a statement. “From over a million volunteer hours to millions of dollars in contributions from thousands of online donors across the country, Sen. Clinton's grassroots support is a key part of her campaign's success."

The campaign had set a goal of raising $3 million in the first three days after Super Tuesday and is now hoping to raise $6 million in that time period.

The news comes shortly after rival Barack Obama's campaign said it had raised $7.2 million in the first 36 hours after Super Tuesday.

Clinton's campaign attributed part of Obama's success to the newly available e-mail list of Sen. John Kerry, and MoveOn.org fundraising efforts. Kerry endorsed Obama last month and MoveOn.org said it was backing the Illinois senator just days before Super Tuesday.

MoveOn.org Executive Director Eli Pariser said his organization has raised $320,000 for Obama since last night, but that figure is not included in the fundraising numbers the Obama campaign has released.

"Our members have not finished giving and none of the contributions through our site have been added yet to the Obama campaign fundraising totals," he said. "We are thrilled we’ll be able to add to Senator Obama’s big day.”

    Even though most media has been very critical of Hillary Clinton, It only shows me that she can take anything thrown at her and stand up to it becuase Us Hillary Supporters, here in Florida, Just Love Her! I think just as the New York Giants defeated the Patriots, The New York Senator will win the nomination, choose a wise selection for a running mate(other than Sen. Obama he's not experienced or well known enough), and win in November. Praise God! America Needs Hillary! Thanks Wolf, for being fair with Hillary in the debates!

    MoveOn.org.

    Those guys are more than a little wacky. I've tried to support some of their efforts in the past, but the wacky factor is too overwhelming.

    But hey they need to try to impose some relevance otherwise...otherwise they become irrelevant.

    Moveon.org is one of the special interest group supporting Obama. Along with Vote Hope and Power pac . That's where Obama gets his campaign contributions .
