Clinton raises $20 million in March

(CNN) - Six hours after senior advisers to Hillary Clinton told reporters her March fundraising total would not be released until later this month, campaign sources tell CNN her campaign raised $20 million during that time period - about half of what rival Barack Obama took in for the month.

    She raises that money with regular hard working people, Obama raises the same amount of money with 3 people including Ophra.
    Hillary Clinton for President 2008 all the way !!!!!!!!!

    Wow, it's sad when raising $20 million is considered crummy.

    I wonder how much McCain raised. But we won't hear about this in the media. The MSM love McCain too much to point out his flaws.

    Nice man! I think Mr Jimmy has been quite mean spirited these past 8 years. Whether you like Bush or not. An ex -President should know when to shut his mouth. Loser. Maybe that goes for Bill as well but don't call Carter a saint. I don't see the other ex-presidents saying anything bad about him. Maybe that's because – who cares?

    Hillary will continue to raise less money until she releases those tax records that elite group that holding out won't release any funding. Hillary knows this, why does she continue holding out.

    ??? Didn't she say that they would release the figures on April 20th?

    They are too darned wishy-washy!!! What the heck is going on in their management offices? Is this what they would do if they were in charge of EVERYTHING????

    Ouch!

    Here's the question I have. How much of that is actually for the primary and how much is for the general election?

    I imagine it may not be enough to cover outstanding debt and her loan to the campaign.

    Aye Carumba!

    I think the fat lady is starting to warm up for the "mi mi mi mi me".

    This show is about over.

    Hope there is enough for health insurance for her campaign workers now. I would hate to see them go another 3 months without coverage.

    What's happening with Hillary. I thought we were waiting for Tax deadline of April 15 before releasing how much she raised in March!

    Can you see how self-destructive Hillary is? I am an Obama supporter but I just fell bad for her each day that she does these rediculous things.

    There is a reason that Barack Obama has raised more money than Hillary Clinton – more people support him and he hasn't exhausted his donor base, it just keeps growing and growing like his support.

    Like rats from a sinking ship people are leaving Mrs. Clinton and it shows; not only in the faces, but in the dollars. She's acting like the angry wife in a bitter divorce. Not pretty.

    That's it, she would not have enough money to campaign against McCain. But, Obama can and he will win this nomination.

    By the time they release the official numbers, it'll be probably be half of that. But everyone will forget by then.

    The Clinton camp actually did this about a year ago. Aback in Feb of 07 they claimed to rake in $6.3 million in a single day. Later when they released the official numbers 3 months later, it turned out to be closer to $2 million. But no one in the media confronted them about it....

  23. Greensboro - former Clinton supporter

    Tsk! Tsk! I am not surprised with all of the lies she tells. It sounds like people are starting to see through her. Try these additional lies for size:

    1) HIllary claims she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, who scaled Mount Everest . . .NOT!

    2) Hillary claims Chelsea was jogging around the World Trade Ctr on 9/11. In fact, Chelsea was watching everything on TV.

    3) Hillary claims that she started the Children's Health Insurance program. NEVER INVOLVED!

    4) When running for N.Y. Senate, she claimed she has always been a Yankies fan. Too hilarious!

    I have lost respect for the Clinton's. Sorry Hill-billies!

    I now can see why the Hillary Camp did not want to announce the amount they have raised on the same line/day as the Obama Camp. People can too easily do the math, side by side. Sounds like the donor money is drying up and out of the money raised, they still have outstanding debts from the previous two months. Hmmmmm

    Now Hillary, WHERE ARE THOSE TAX RETURNS?? COME ON, YOU CAN DO THIS, IT WONT HURT A BIT TO RELEASE THEM.. AMERICA AND PENN IS WAITING
