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.

    I am an independent; there is no way I would vote for Hillary Clinton. Her lack of foresight now is proof that she is not best qualified for President.

    She should know how divisive she is. She should know that she will not win independent or disenfranchised Republican votes, both necessary in November. She should know that she will single handily give McCain the Presidency.

    Her lack of foresight reminds me of Nader in 2000.

    I hope I will not vote for McCain but that is how I see it going down.

    Independent for Obama

    Is Hillary, as she claims, completely vetted? Not, anymore, without release of those tax returns.

    Someone needs to tell the Clinton campaign to stop wasting campaign donations on confetti so she won't need to lend her campaign money again.

  8. For the record....

    Hey – where are those money records from February for Senator Obama....considerably more than Clinton? Show me the numbers....I bet they are close to each other!

    The only reason she won Texas was because Republicans supported her.

    How sad!

    It appears that any critical post about Hillary is not being posted.

    Senator Clinton's success at fundraising makes it all the more imperative that she and her husband release their tax returns. For the sake of her party and her own good name, she owes it to the American people to come clean about the sources of her and her husband's considerable wealth.

    WHAT IS OBAMA HIDING? THEY HAD NO TROUBLE SAYING THEY HAD RAISED OVER 50 MILLION FOR FEBRUARY. DO THEY NEED TO FIX THE BOOKS NOW.

    if raising money is as important as the press makes it out and is bragged about so excessively by candidates' supporter, why don't we just let the highest fund raiser be President?

    It was learned today that theres something not being told about Obamo and that crook in chicago on trial...I'm wondering could it be that Tony told him he would do everything he could to get him elected and if he is convicted Obamo will pardon him...somethings fishy about the 2 thats not been told...I'm sure it will come out.

    I guess the "little people" are speaking. You know, us poor, uneducated, "lunch bucket" folks. I think it's funny Obama "won't release" his figures.

    "What we raised was considerably higher". Na, Na, Na, Na, Na. We raised more millions then you did! How sad isn't it? Is this all that it's about? People are living paycheck to paycheck. The banks keep riping them off. The oil compainies keep riping people off at the pump. Everything you buy seems to come from China. Enough of the stupid spending already. Give that money to the poor, or someplace that it can do some good rather than to pay for a television spot or jet fuel to haul your butt over the US. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeze enough already.

    I think the media should've held off on declaring her "victory" in Texas. Texas has a hybrid system, and until the caucus results fully come in (which have Obama up 12%), it's irresponsible to suggest that she gained any great momentum.

    RI and VT – a wash.
    OH – Hillary wins by 10%
    TX – Obama will likely win overall hybrid by small %

    So basically, she won Ohio. Whoop.

    Yeah President Hillary Clinton.

    She is raising cash and today Obama's own foreign policy adviser is raising questions about Obama by saying Obama "is not ready" for a 3:00 a.m. call.

    This is great news! I am going to make a contribution online so she can keep up in the spending war with Obama in order to take Pennsylvania.

    BTW Obama:
    Why not release your February contribution totals?

    What are you trying to hide? lmao

    It time for Obama to quite gracefully, he lost the momentum now.
