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.

    Isn't that just great! And then CNN has to put the slap in there from the Obama Camp. I would ask that the Obama camp prove it! I only say that because where indeed is all this money coming from if not from one person to another?

    how much of that came from lobbyists? i'm not too informed on political funding, so this is not a jab at her but rather a simple question i wish to be answered.

    I can't believe the Obama spokesman had to react by such an immature way...we've raised considerably more than that. Sounds like a child saying "my toy is better than yours." This campaign is getting so tiresome.

  6. Where do we go from here?

    I am very, very happy to not be living in Texas or Ohio right now.

    Can she really plough all that dough into her campaign before March 4th? If she doesn't, and she loses, where does the money go after she drops out? If she does, and she wins, what does she do thereafter?

    I too will vote for McCain if Obama gets the nomination. Writing in Hillary negates the vote and can still give Obama the election so that is not an option. We cannot stand on principle any longer. We Hillary supporters must unite and stop this guy despite how the Democratic party will force Hillary to priase Obama at the convention. This is no longer in Hillary's hands. It is in our hands and we need to vote for McCain. I suspect at least 30% of Hillary supporters will cross party lines Nov 4th and give McCain the election. There is no way in hell Obama can win with that crossover. This will be our way of sticking it to the media the way they stuck it our girl!
    This backlash can change the way the media shows bias for one candididate and return the country to objective news reporting.

    Very good. Go Hillary. Hillary will surely win TX, Oh, and PA, and then will win the general election, and will be the first woman president in America, which is wonderful. I am very proud of it though I am a man.

    Other countries like Canada, British, Germany, turkey, Pakistan, chile, Philippians can have a woman leader, why not our America? It is not fair.

    Bad way to spend money, really. For all of them. Obama, Clinton, Mccain, please donate all these money to New Orleans.

    Hey Hillary – here's one Independent that McCain won't get if Huckabee drops out.

    Gives an indication that she has a lot of support out there for her. She is not out yet. I hope the DNC takes this into consideration in choosing a nominee. It weould be shame if they lost the folks that gave to the opposing party.

    We're going on her word with this one, something I'd strongly advise we not do, given her past history of partial disclosure and outright lying.
