Clinton campaign raises $3 million in a day

Clinton's campaign said it raised $3 million in the day after its string of victories.

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton’s campaign has raised $3 million online since her string of victories Tuesday night, an aide said Thursday.

Since lending her campaign $5 million shortly before the February 5 Super Tuesday contests, Clinton’s fundraising fortunes have improved considerably, though Barack Obama’s campaign has continued to outspend her.

Donations to Clinton’s campaign climbed from $14 million in January to roughly $35 million in February. Obama’s campaign raised $36 million in January, and has not yet released its February fundraising numbers. His advisers have said only that the total is “considerably higher” than Clinton’s.

The New York senator won three out of four Democratic primaries Tuesday night, beating Obama in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island. Obama claimed a victory in Vermont.

1:00 p.m. UPDATE: Clinton's campaign announced it has raised $4 million since Tuesday's contests and $6 million in the month of March.

    Good news! I just donated again this morning, and as with many of her supporters that post on her blog, it wasn't much, but apparently there are enough of us to really make those small contributions add up.

    I think Hillary has many more supporters than others realize, and I encourage supporters of all candidates to focus on the positive, to build up their candidate, rather than to tear down other candidates.

    The Clintons are the past – America is moving into a New Day and a New World. Since Hillary endorsed McCain – perhaps she should run as his VP.

    GO OBAMA!!!!!

    At any rate, Obama raised over $50M last month.

    Our 44th US President Barack Obama – LOVE IT...........

    GO OBAMA!!!!! GO OBAMA!!!!! GO OBAMA!!!!! GO OBAMA!!!!! GO OBAMA!!!!!GO OBAMA!!!!!

    I wonder how much of the $3 million she donated herself? I guess we would know if she would release her tax returns…

    Dude, are you retarded? That wouldn't show up until next year when 2008's money is filed. This year's return would show 2007's data. But to answer your question, all the millions of her supporters have donated the money. If you sought information out yourself instead of depending on supposition and/or rumor you'd know that.

    Let's give it another try.... Paul v. Clinton in Los Angeles Superior Court – Fraud case to go to trial in the Fall of 2008. Research it for yourselves folks.

    Once again as you read. Up-beat positive comments from Team Hillary and nothing but spite & hate from the great uniters team. Hillary and her supporters have a positive message for America and we welcome all to be a part of it. With the Obama supporters it's him or nobody. This is not uniting. And remember in November these delegates won't mean squat. In November it will come down to the states we must win to retake the White House. It'll take the states Hillary has won.

    In Canada, there is now an investigation in to who and why did a Canadian official release a memo about NAFTA to the media. In fact, Clinton's aides made similar comments to Canadian officials, but SOMEBODY paid a Canadian official to leak a memo attacking Obama.

    There is now credible source that it was either the Republicans or Bill Clinton who were behind the Obama smear.

    What do we get when Hillary Clinton raises $3 million in one day coupled with wins in Ohio, Texas, and Rhode Island? We get hate and rage from Obama supporters. What a shock.

    What if Senator Clinton wins Pennsylvania and goes on to win the do overs in Michigan and Florida?

    If that happens, which is a real possibility, look for the true character of Obama and his supporters. More Hate and more Rage!

    Hillary will do and say anything to grab power. Hillary had her chance as first lady but she could not influence any real good change for people. Remmember Elenor Roosevelt, she was a first lady that used her close proximity to power to impact America and the World.

    Hillary and Bill promised America a solution to health care but Hillary failed to deliver because of her devissive and "know it all" approach. Hillary cannot win the elections, Republicans will come together in droves to prevent Hillary and Bill from the oval office, so will Obama supporters. I will not vote for Hillary under any circumstances, I will vote for Mcain instead.

    All of you Hilliary supporters did you know that she is involved in fiscal fraud. that she also will leave our military in iraq longer than she proclaim to. did you know she was going to use 5 billion to help her so call middle to low-income people. when in actuality that means our taxes will increase because her so call plan will cost between 60 to a 100 billion dollars. so where is it coming from? she claims to preserve our constitution but she has yet to read it. with her preserving it, it affects our due process of law and will affect out 1st amendment. her experience on national security she has none. ask her about the white gate scandal

    George Bush must have applied Scooter Libby justict and released some of the Clinton's big donnors out of jail. At last count, 12 of the Clinton's biggest donnors are in jail, with 2 more to join them soon – Norman Hsu and Tony Rezko.

    Search for "Tony Rezko" and you will find picture of him standing in between ... you guessed it ... Hillary and Bill Clinton. Professionally, in front of blue drapes and American flags.

    Good....she'll need to money for her defense during HER fraud trial in October 2008. BTW CNN, why aren't you and the other news organizations mentioning Hillary legal problems, especially in light of Obama's alleged ties to Rezko?
