Clinton team claims campaign fundraising record

Hillary Clinton's campaign said that as of 11:30 p.m. ET Tuesday night, they had raised nearly $2.5 million since the state was called for the New York senator – what they called their "best night ever" - with 80 percent of that money coming from new donors.

Her campaign Web site is using her victory in a fundraising appeal that calls for $5 donations.

    Yep...donated another $25 to Obama tonight

    She won, but it isn't enough...and if it wasn't for her fear mongering and her using Republican campaign tactics, it would have only been by 6. She's trying to cripple our party in order to be able to run again in 4 years.

    Hopefully we will contribute enough money, that Hillary will have the same shot as Obama at buying a ticket to the WH!!!

    hmmm, she raised $2.5 million, the campaign is still about $10 million in debt, so i guess that means they're only about $7.5 million in debt now...

    Better try to get to the $10 million that your campaign is currently in debt. Just think . . . America's purse strings could be next . . .

    Are you Billary supporters just plain mental midgets? This race has been effectively over since super tuesday and that's a fact! Billary won PA… netting a handful of more delegates, which Obama will obviously win back in NC. Do you morons not realize his plan was to drain her campaign financially in PA, by purposely outspending her (which he can afford), causing her to spend as well. Unless she loans herself more money, her bankroll is spent and will have nada for NC & IN (and beyond if she's selfish enough to continue on). The superdelegates will not overturn the popular vote, the elected delegates, and the states Obama has won. As every exit poll in virtually every contest has shown, educated voters support Obama. Maybe this is why Billary supporters (and their candidate) can't do the math that clearly shows her demise long ago. Get a clue!

    SHE NEED 2.5 MILLION MORE TO PAY HERSELF BACK AND 10 MILLION TO PAY HER VENDORS. WHY WASTE YOUR MONEY.

    SHE IS IN THE HOLE AND WILL PUT THE COUNTRY IN THE HOLE JUST TO SERVE HERSELF.

    Now, with only 10 point win, it was not enough. There will be no more
    good money funding on a second place finish. Look down the road,
    those with eyes, cannot see. ?

    She raised $2.5 million, isn't she int the red with almost that amount?

    So, actually she'll have to use that money to put her in the black!
