The Clinton campaign is reporting a very successful fundraising day.

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton's campaign says it is on track to raise $10 million online in the 24 hours since the Pennsylvania primary results were announced.

"Senator Clinton's game-changing victory last night has turned the tide and resulted in an historic outpouring of grassroots support," Clinton Campaign Chairman Terry McAuliffe said in a statement. "Just like Hillary, our supporters have met every challenge and come through each time. Thanks to them, we will have the resources needed to compete and win as we move ahead to the next contests."

The campaign also said over 60,000 donors - 50,000 of them new - have given money to Clinton from Tuesday night through noon Wednesday.

    Just beautiful!!

    It's great being the underdog, because when you start winning big everything comes to light and you were indeed right after all.

    Each donation to Clinton fuels the Republican campaign. What a bunch of suckers. This was supposed to be a slam-dunk election for the dems, but Hillary is going to make it tough.

  4. Debt paid

    Congrats to the Clinton supporters who finally paid Penn's salary and her 4.5 million debt off! I'm glad the money is well-spent!

    That might be enough to erase some of the debt that I have heard/read other people who are better informed mention. I can't believe that Clinton is doing well and has this much debt. If her campaign is to be an example of how well she could run the federal budget, I'd rather go with Obama as an example; plenty of money coming in to spend as needed with little concerns of over spending and debt.

    Which I hope you are going to pay all of your outstanding bills with Hillary.

    For someone that has oddles of money between herself and her husband, it's amazing to me that her campaign is in debt. It boggles my mind that people think she's better to fix the economy when she can't even keep her own campaign finances in line.

    Don't fret Senator Obama. The folks in North Carolina will seal the deal for you. Your problem is most likely not because these folks are old, its because they are racists. I predict that the old-timers in Indiana and North Carolina know honesty and intelligence when they see it. Apparently Pennsylvanians only see black and white. Obama08

    I must admit that is semi impressive but if u want anywhere close to the amount Obama has, then you need to raise 50 million more. Good luck Witch.

    * Over $130,000 from energy lobbyists
    * Over $130,000 from drug company lobbyists
    * Over $125,000 from health care and insurance lobbyists.”
    * Energy: $442,800
    * Pharmaceuticals/health products: $450,450
    * Hospitals, health services/HMOs and insurance companies: $552,050
    * Health professionals: $114,755.

    Don't waste your money on Clinton. Look at the results of the elections (Ohio, PA and TX) and you'll see that Hillary won those states by carrying the districts that traditionally go Republican.

    Last night didn't change the game, it just prolonged it.
