Clinton raised $36 million in February.

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton raised $35 million in February, more than double what the New York senator raised the month before, her campaign announced Thursday.

Barack Obama spokesman Bill Burton meanwhile indicated Obama's total for the same period will be considerably higher than that, the AP reported.

In January, Clinton raised nearly $14 million, compared to Obama's $36 million. Earlier this month, the New York senator revealed she loaned her campaign $5 million in an effort to stay competitive with Obama heading into the February 5 round of primaries.

    I wonder how much is already gone to overpaid advisers, and donoughts. Its sad to see every week you are sending out more emails for money, so there must not be much left.

    Are we sure this doesn't include another loan? She "fibbed" last time in January, conveniently leaving out that she had to loan herself $5 million dollars because of her bad campaign finance money skills.

    And yet people are saying she should exit the race. Folks should remember the names of the folks in office that called for this. Rather than let the process play out which apparently $35 million dollars worth of people seem committed to have happen, those folks in public office hava basically said those that contirbuted to Hillary's bid for the White House should be ignored.

    Its dispicable when you loan yourself 5 million and then go out and ask the american people to support your campaign with money out of their pockets. Doesn't it seem just wrong!!!? Why don't she just use money from her own pocket? I don't know about the rest of the Hill supporters but this just doesn't seem right to me!!!!

    RACE GENDER
    BEFORE YOU SEND ANY MORE TO OBOMA H. YOU MIGHT WANT A FEW QUESTION ANSWERED.....

    LEWIS CLEARLY DID NOT WANT TO GIVE UP HIS VOTE....

    HIS BLACK BROS. MADE HIM...WHY? BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL?

    HIS CHURCH.... RACE ALL THE WAY THROUGH....HE HAS BEEN AN ACTIVE MEMBER FOR 20.YEARS.....

    IF THIS HAD BEEN A VOTE TAKEN AWAY FROM A WHITE MAN IT WOULD BE FRONT PAGE NEWS.......

    BUT IT WAS A WOMAN (ANY COLOR) SO IT IS ON THE BACK PAGE.....WHY?

    Incorrect CNN. Earlier this month she reported that she loaned her campaign $5 Million in January.

    The $35 Million for the month of February is legitimate and climbing.
