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.

    Under the political ticker headline "Clinton leads Obama in Texas caucuses count" Isn't that supposed to be "Obama leads Clinton in Texas caucuses count". Is this an oversight?

    Hey, CNN – the photo you chose to illustrate this story isn't a form of editorializing.... is it?

    Use some of that $3 million to release your top secret tax returns to the voting public – NOW. A Transparent Clinton presidency is the very definition of an oxymoron.

    Hillary is very BAD in math:
    She offered joint ticket ! Its a joke of the year !
    For this everyone should hate her. For her self-contradiction, for her egoism and for her sense of (dis)proportion !

    She is a very BAD American:
    She views, Ohio=rest of USA

    Do not post this comment:

    Why do you(cnn) always put horrible photos of clinton on your website?

    $3.0 million is pretty darn good. It's only 52% less than Ron Paul record fundraising day of $6.2 million. Nice work!

    Hillary, you are well on your way to the White House.

    Keep fundraising, keep campaigning, keep talking...

    Senator Clinton, you have got what it takes to be Commander In Chief!

    Hillary 08!!

    Why is this news? Ron Paul raised over $6 million in one day. Obviously the media is just trying to ramp this up to keep Hillary in the spotlight so she'll beat Obama.

    Now that she is seen as viable again, Hillary will start pulling in more donations. Go, Madam President!

    Well, you asked for it Girl, and you made it...

    Now use it to it's full advantage.... Think. Think. Think..

    Dollars are scarce.. You have to win. The next two with a better margin than Texas..

    Where are the Clinton's current and previous tax returns? The Obama campaign has been spending more because they have been extremely successful in getting smaller donations. The Clinton campaign just started using this technique after they fired their Latina campaign manager and Hillary lent her campaign $5 million dollars.

    FYI, Obama is on his way to officially winning Texas given his probable overall delegate lead there when the caucuses are figured in.

    Remember that the nomination process is not just about popular vote, but also a measure of organizational ability, which is how it was designed.

    So, really, he won Texas.
