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.

    On Tuesday evening I donated – again – to Hillary's campaign. I consider it money well-spent. And, don't worry, when she gets the nomination, she can count on me for more.

    Good job Hillary! All you need is to raise half of what Obama raises,becuase he will out spend you by that much like he did in Texas and Ohio and still come out the big loser.

    I contributed to that $3M and I will continue to contribute! Obama can continue outraise us, but money is not everything. It didn't seem to help in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island, doubt it will work in Pennsylvania.

    Clinton can spew her money strengths to the media (I doubt it's even true) but won't release her tax returns? What are you hiding Clinton? Afraid the public will find you out? This is why there will never be a joint ticket...Sen. Obama has nothing to hide. Clinton always has and always will. Stop being a coward, Hillary. We need strength like Sen. Obama not a coward like you.

    If of if Hilary dose not win the nomination and obama gets it will very bad for democrats. He is very inexperience; lies a lot and no served this country. Almost all Latino’s and Asian do no like him because of his color. They rather vote for the war hero McCain this is a fact. In order for him to win he needs these votes.

    so hilary needs to win

  19. AnyoneButHillary

    Can someone from CNN please explain it ALL the voters around this country – How can CNN or any media for that matter flash the entire web page with Senator Clinton's picture and claim that her wins on March 4th is a HUGE victory. She said "MEET ME IN TEXAS, MEET ME IN OHIO" and what not to Senator Obama and claimed that those states are custom made for her and yet win JUST 10 EXTRA DELEGATES than Senator Obama.
    Did Hillary Clinton scare you folks with her "pro-obama media" comment?

    Amazing one democrat asking another about their tax return.

    Tax return are for the IRS, NOT for Obama personal review. He thinks he is running an independent ticket under a democratic heading, real apparent now.
    Obama needs to discuss his plans in his AD's and paper fliers, he only shows what he does not like about his opponent, what is your plans and how to accouplish them would be better, OPPS NOT MUCH TO SAY THAT WAY.
    Clinton has only shown positive plans on paper, Obama has yet to show any positive plans or hold a signal town hall meeting. It is quite apparent why, direct feedback is hard to come by with this guy.

    Hillary's positive resume will get the JOB, a negative about an opponent does not carry the day as a resume.
    Sorry JR Senator from ILL we want to know about YOU, not what you don't like about your opponent. It is your resume we want to see.

  23. CA boomer for CHANGE

    If not for the medias hyping of the Obama phenomena, Hillary's very narrow win in Texas (and loss in the caucus), and victories in 2 states she was always supposed to win would not be notable. This is the spouse of a very popular former president........ a member of the so-called first family of Dem politics. I would have been surprised if she had not done at least this well in these states.....

    I am certain the upstart younger senator from Illinois was not even considered a speed bump in the road on her way to the presidency. Well he is here to stay and I am convinced, that considering all of the obstacles he has already overcome in his life, he has prepared to do battle with the mighty Clinton Machine. He is the change the country needs and deserves. I am sending in another donation to the cause!!!

    Updated | 12:45 p.m.: Peter Daou, the Clinton campaign’s internet director, offered up some additional details on fund-raising since Tuesday.
    Since polls closed on Tuesday through noon today, the campaign has brought in $4 million from 40,000 donors, 30,000 of them new to the campaign.

    Dating from March 1, the campaign has raised $6 million, a rate of about a million dollars a day.
    For anyone looking to make an apples-to-apples comparison of 24-hour periods after Tuesday’s results, the campaign collected $3 million from midnight that night to midnight the following day.

    America, I'm proud of you even more for showing a fight for the "TOP JOB". Obama may raise/outspend Hillary more, but guess what, the people of the 50 states of America get to decide who they want in the WH not the big donors. This race is not about money, nor race, nor sex, it's about the people and their right to voice their choice in electing the next PRESIDENT not the next american idol.
    Go HILLARY. WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK. Women always have stood beside/behind their men giving them the support to achieve their dreams, now it's time to swap over. Surely this is not a problem:)
    We are equal now..... after all Women got the right to vote last behind whites and black and we got it not because of male support but despite it and if we can put that behind us, surely ye can do the same.
