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.

    More important than the amount is the question of "who" makes these donations. Obama's donations come small and many like the voices of America.

    Campaign Staffers Insurance Premiums-is the bill paid and are Campaign Staffers not insured yet?

    Campaign Staffers Paychecks? Have they received them yet?

    Ohio Vendors and other State Vendors-Are those bills paid? They
    are trying hard to make a small living for their families.

    Any outstanding phone bills? Utility Bills? Rent Bills? Food Bills?

    What is exactly unpaid?
    How much do you owe?

    Love staying in the Campaign for the sake of living "high life".
    on Campaign Money.

    Problem with the campaign, too many tricks and lies.

    Hillary, why don't you ask for a loan from Bill – he sure made enough last year. And you consider yourself just an everyday person – what a joke you are

    Backdated that loan, huh? What a bunch of pathetic managers she has. It all reflects directly on her. Sad. Sad. Sad.

    Ouch that's not much of a budget to work with, I guess that explains why she can't pay her Bills. Maybe she should campaign within her means and not wait for the govt to bail her out like all the mortgage companies.

    That is still a lot of money to raise, considering that she's running second to a very charming (that's all he has) opponent.

    Go Hillary!

    Amazing what can get done where there's a will to do it. Now use that new-found will to release the tax information. It can be done just as easily... IF.YOU.REALLY.WANT.TO.

    Right... that's what I thought.

    Go home. Campain in deep debt and hanging on life support. We the people are ready to move on without the Bush/Clinton dynasty. Crisis, crisis, crisis. This is the reality in Hillary's campaign.

    Thanks Hillary for revealing the sad news!

    I would suggest that you and your camp should try to do the right thing instead of resisting at every step.

    When Obama talks about change, this is the kind of change he means.

    If we were to have a person like Hillary in White House, we will see nothing but statusquo and washington as usual politics. How will things be different than they are at present?

    We need Obama because he is not spoilt by Washington politics yet. Hope he will not, ever!

    Hillary supporters, it is time to get behind change – get behind the only candidate who can change the future for USA. Abandon the dilly dally candidate, and vote for Obama.

  17. Southerner For Obama

    Now I see why the Clinton campaign did not want to announce their totals on the same day in the same breathe as the Obama campaign. Sounds like her supprt is drying up and there are still outstanding bills to be paid to vendors in Ohio and dont forget about health premiums due for her employees. She is the Healthcare leader but can't pay health premiums Hmmmmm

    Hillary and Bill, you have done a lot to destroy the party and now your chickens have come home to roost. Sound familiar??

    The wheels are falling off the wagon. This thing is over and Obama needs to focus on McCain starting today.

    Hillary, I love you, but its time to do the honorable thing and step aside.

    President Obama. That has a nice ring.

    That's all she needs.. To Clean out the Weeds... Now, Hillary's going to do some Gardening... And dig out the few roots, Obama has left.

    Not bad but also not good enough. Obama's political machine dwarfs Hillary's. Let's see if he will keep his promise to John McCain to use public funding for the general election.

    Hey that was fast! Big donors must be drying up. Hope that $20M goes a long way toward settling her debts and paying for her employees health care.

    Hillary's campaign is at the end of her downfall and lies. Bill and Hillary please..go home with your lying family....

    Thank you Hillary. $20M is nothing to sneeze at. I think it's still better than what McCain has been getting.
