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.

    Clinton needed to win by at least 20% to make meaningful headway. She needs to win th remaining contests by 20% TO BE ABLE TO MAKE HER ANTICIPATED ARGUEMENT. It appears virtually impossible to catch Obama considering the "slim" victory in PA. This is the time the superdelegates should "make the call" and this is for the sake of the party. Republicans will be at a very great advantage if this continues. The Obama camp should make the call to super delegates now.

    I don't believe it. Hillary is bankrolling her campaign and she needs to pay her bills!

    So was that an organized stunt too? I don't trust that "Scranton gal". She's whoever she needs to be to win, win win!...a wolf in sheep's clothing. It would be nice to be able to trust the next president.

    I really dont understand why people vote for Hillary, IMHO, everything about her personality turns me off as far a leadership, intgrity, honesty, humility. She comes off as truely arrogant

    Hillary infact you are really a hypocrate.Now you expext me to send you some money?what for?For you to use it against an hornest person so you can paint him as "out of touch`´ while you make your stupid comments about attacking Iran.I tell you this if the American people really want peace which is what their constitution believes in,i think they will find out what direction you intend to go and you,ll be done.We need a president who who listerns to others points of views and not a liar like you......lair lair lair.

    Lets see: $10M in debt minus $2.5M in donations = $7.5M in debts.
    Congratulations on the win and good luck in Indiana you will need it!

  15. America Post Obama

    Fantastic! Amazing! She beat Obama and all of that lobbyist's money thrown away ( what a waste of good money, could have been put to better use) they has been given to him under the table. Ain't gold all that glitters!

    Go Obama,they said you would be out first because you would not be able to raise enoght money you did by quadroppling their.So tell me something foxes,how would she manage the economy when she can note even manage her campain financies.She owns over 15million dollar now. Stop voting for the same washington Name just because you had heard them before.Remember Bush,just like will be Clinton.She is trying to get into the white house so she can fight those who impioched her husband rather you .She condems China now after setting up free trade deals with them.Come back to reality American.Our nation is perishing we need to look at someone who will restore our image at home and abroad and change the direction we are takeing.your vote counts.Vote Obama

    And? Having a big war chest doesn't help if there's no resonance with the majority of voters. Having ENOUGH money to get the message out vs. having MORE than enough doesn't seem like it's that useful.
    There's only so much money you can cram into advertisements before people get sick of it.

    One has to wonder what happened to Shrub's huge war chest, since he didn't need to use too much of it running as a war and fear candidate in 2004.

    i just donated and i am incouraging al my friends what a great night for hillary , with all the money spent by the obama campaign and many of the major newspapers tv and media outlets relentless bad press towards her she still managed a double digit win , the people of pa are smarter than the slanted press and overwhelming attack adds by the oboma campaign , the politics of change really didnt resonate well and the silly speeches with no substance and solutions didnt fool the people of this state so come on indiana and north carolina see a new wave of momentum from the hillary campaign sweep through !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I donated again to Hillary. I will keep donating because she is the real deal – a fighter all the way, not some pansy buttocks.

    Don't depend on the media to do fact checking against Hillary. They have proved useless thus far.

    Yeah, I believe that like I believe everything else that comes out of their piehole. The only way to believe that garbage is if they give out the list of "new" donors with a timestamp to prove how much and when they got it. Remember, this "piece of work" will say, do, tell anything. This is why she has a 60% untrustworthy rating! It also shows that the people that are voting for her don't care if someone is trustworthy. "You know, I have a feelin' you is lyin' out you patoot, but what da heck… you got my vote!" PATHETIC!

    Unless the Clintons have a hidden talent for playing high-stakes no limit hold'em that I'm not aware about, there's no way she is going to be able to stay in the race much longer. Her campaign bus has run out gas, and it's $4.00 a gallon! Hillary's chickens have come home to roost.

    Obama spent $12 million and lost Pennsylvania. What a waste of his supporters money.
