(CNN) - Hillary Clinton’s campaign said Friday it had raised more than $8 million online since polls closed in California, and nearly $10 million since February 1.
In a conference call with reporters, Clinton communications director Howard Wolfson also said much of that money had come from roughly 75,000 new donors.
Wolfson added that the campaign will be able to spend roughly as much on television ads in upcoming contests as Barack Obama’s campaign – despite the fact that the Illinois senator has been on the air in states that vote over the next few days since well before the Super Tuesday votes.
Clinton’s campaign will begin airing ads today in states voting over the next few days, and will purchase airtime in Texas and Ohio next week.

Can someone explain what it means to 'loan' your own campaign money? Does this mean that after people donate to her compaign she can take that money out of the campaign and reimburse herself with the donated funds? Also, where did she get $5 million to loan to herself?
Holly from Kansas City– You should read more closely. The 75,000 number means NEW donors to the campaign. 75,000 NEW people have donated for the FIRST TIME to Hillary's campaign since Super Tuesday. Obviously they don't represent the total number of people who have donated.
