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.

    Good for you hillary now start paying your debt and heath care for your employees. Also we still need to see your tax returns, what are you hiding. You can run but you can not hide, you have been through it before remember Bosnia. Get those returns and done with it.

    Hello Jack or whomever is reading this

    As an Astrologer who came up with a 9 degree 11 minute Gemini rising chart for the USA I am quite sure that Obama will be the next President, My personal choice would be McCain, but that just is not going to happen.

    G..don't you realized both CLINTON and Obama have BROKEN ALL DEMOCRATIC FUND RAISING RECORDS?

    McCain raises 12 Million...which is a respectable number in a Presidential Election. 80 Million is needed.

    I think the economy is not busted right now because Obama and Clinton are spending money like crazy...on their campaigns.

    Just thought of something funny!

    Hillary's supporters drink a lot of beer that McCain's wife produces. Hillary's supporters get poor and get bigger bellies, while McCain's wife rakes in millions.

    I heard McCain's wife has agreed to open her beer money coffers to pay for his biography tours. The beer money she got from Clintonians!

    If you think about it, Clintonians are funding McCain's campaign at the expense of her own presidential bid. Won't it be smarter to give that contribution to Obama? Wake up Clintonians – do yourself a favor and give your money and vote to Obama. Please!

    My question to Hillary supporters is this:
    If Hillary cannot take care of her own fiscal responsibilities (bills/healthcare), then how in the world will she help America’s money problem?????

    Hillary I am your supporter, but when it is time to go it time to go. I suggest you drop out of the race and go back to your senate seat in New York you can always run again in 2012. Love you hillary

    And adding...i just donated $500.00 to her campaing.

    Hillary I would do whatever to help you win (phone bank, door to door, rallies etc). I am also going to PA this Saturday with a group of volunteers from NYC to campaing for you Hillary. We will defeat Obama... Hillary is by far the best dem candidate we have period. SAY NO TO OBAMA, AND HIS RACIST WIFE, THEY CANNOT BE TRUSTED.

    HILLARY ALL THE WAY.............2016

    Hey, how come this news item is so small, you can hardly see it on the page. Is Clinton News Network trying to minimize the value of this extraordinary gap between Obama and Clinton's fundraising in march?

    Obama supporters will make sure he has all the resources he needs to win. There will be shock and awe when you see what we'll be able to do to ensure he wins in the fall. Don't underestimate the power of our committment. The people are formidable and the republicans cannot stop us.

    First they say they're going to wait to release the figures, then they suddenly release them 6 hours later. Just another indication of a out of control organization. We need a leader who's in control, who's on top of his organization. We need Obama.

    THIS JUST IN: Barack has agreed to pay off all of the Clinton campaign outstanding bills if she drops out of the race.

    Sound like a good deal to me.

    Ouch! That's got to hurt. The amount Hillary fundraised in total is not bad, $20 million.

    The part that hurts is that 6 HOURS AGO SENIOR ADVISERS OF THE CLINTON CAMP TOLD REPORTERS THAT HILLARY'S FUNDRAISING TOTAL WOULD NOT BE RELESED UNTIL LATER IN THE MONTH OF APRIL! Her coalition of folks is weakening as evidence by the many loose-lips. As my mother use to say "Loose Lips, Sinks Ships!"

    The Obama campaign will have brought in twice as much money. What is even more impressive is how much of that is due to the number of first-time and small donor contributions...the numbers are staggering. The reason, Obama is the "People's Candidate" and even in a time of economic certainty Americans are willing to give their time, their energy and their "hard earned" money to a candidate who offers a new direction and vision for America.

    Interesting that the article on Sen. Obama's total for March reads:

    "Impressive as the $40 million figure is, it is well below the $55 million Obama raised in February."

    Sen. Clinton raised $20 million in March–$15 million less than in Feb.

    Sen. Obama raised $40 million in March–$15 million less than in Mar.

    So why doesn't the Clinton article also read:

    "Impressive as the $20 million figure is, it is well below the $35 million Clinton raised in February."

    it says that the clinton campaign SAYS it raised 20 million but without data to prove it theres no reason to believe that number to be true. its probably less and we will find out soon. and lets not forget they still have debts to pay off.

  24. IT'S A GOOD START

    CONGRATS HILLARY...20 MIL IS NOTHING TO SNEEZE AT. IT'S JUST THAT OBAMA RUNS A DYNAMIC CAMPAIGN. IF WE WERE TO RALLY WITH HIM IF ELECTED HE COULD DO GREAT THINGS.
