Moments after the Obama campaign announced that it had raised $40 million in the month of March, Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson told reporters on a campaign conference call that the New York senator's fundraising figures for that month would not be released until April 20 - the official FEC deadline, two days before the Pennsylvania primary.
"We knew that he was going to outraise us, he has outraised us for the last several months," said Wolfson. "We will have the resources that we need to compete and be successful in the upcoming primary states."
He said the Obama campaign had already outspent Clinton's in Pennsylvania about 4-to-1 and that he expected her campaign would be outspent about 2-to-1 on TV ad buys going forward.
Wolfson added that they expected Clinton's tax returns to be released within the one-week time frame she had promised. Clinton actually made the pledge eight days ago.

It must be bad news.
Is this a JOKE? She and her campaign are pathetic.
Hmmmm....why will it take so long???????? Sounds "fishy"
It takes 2 weeks to count cash?
Time to kick in another $5 mil, Hill, or cut your losses?
The delay is evidence of poor management of the Clinton campaign....and an indication of how poorly they would run the country.
No worries at all
We should also expect you to release the Tax reports from Hillary
Show us the money!
Where is the BEEF!
Yep BO has the money and he needs it!
His weak record of experience that counts has to be purchased.
If it's good news, people are eager to report it. This must not be good news for Hillary and she is just delaying letting people know. Out off money, out of luck, time to get out of this race especially if Obama comes within 5 points or wins in Pennsylvania.
I don't care about Clinton competing or what she has raised. I think she should step down from this.
Why wait 3 weeks into the month to disclose last month's totals, unless they are less than dismal and less than their own past monthly totals?
Great so where are your tax returns?
She's got to backdate those loans to her campaign. Let's see, she is supposed to release her taxes then too. Somehow, CNN is going to fall for the slight of hand and end up satisfied if they only get one set of numbers released.
Hillary ran out of white out & needs a few more cases to docter them up. The only person in America who can't find a copy machine to turn over her taxes a Month ago. Don't take the American People as fools Hillary.
Trustworthy Issues = Not Electable
Take note Super Delegates!
If you need Pennsylvania to stay in the election I would have spent 1-to-1. Or do you think that you already own the fine State of Penn?
Along with her tax records ? I am waiting ...
Another proof that Clintons don't like transparency!
Burn this statement in your head.......HILLARY IS A LIAR....PERIOD.
She will hide, dodge, conceal, deny and do ANYTHING to win the nomination.
AMERICA.....is this truly who you want as your next president??? Remember the world is watching...this is an important step in the evolution of your country. Don't let someone "Mis-speak" your intentions. By the way...WORDS DO MATTER!!!
OBAMA 8/12...JUDGEMENT....LEADERSHIP...INTEGRITY....HONESTY and STREGNTH.
Here we go again. Hillary Clinton's campaign will release the least information possible at the latest moment required by law. So much for openness and transparency!
Obama's can easily raise more money having big pharma lobbyist working for him, General Dynamics defense contractor board of director as well. Obama gets tons of money from "non registered" lobbies so he can say he takes no lobby money.
Obama and Hillary have spent close to 500 million over the last 6 months, promoting themselves as great fighters for the poor...
Gosh, we will have to get 'sniper fire' soon to get the Clinton required figures!!!!!!!
Sounds like someone is hiding something.......again.....Something that Pennsylvanians might not like maybe.....
Obama Richardson 08!!!!
notice she's waiting till the last possible minute to release her tax returns...she apparently things her amount she raises will over shadow her fraudulent earnings! Smart move HRC...too bad you're a phony
Hillary is losen endorsement and fundraisen any other time she reelease her figures, I wonder what is up with her. Hillary is not to be trusted
Where is her taxes??? Come one Hilary stop loafting what is the delay. TAXES PLEASE
