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.

    Good, maybe now she can pay down some of her debt. But will she? Or will she let the debt ride and buy more ad time? What counts more, the solvency of the small businesses that have made her campaign possible, or the ambition of the woman herself?

    Yes, come on everyone and support the ethically challenged, bald-faced liar who voted for giving lame-brained George W. authorization to wage an ill-fated war and for the lobbyist-driven NAFTA treaty.

    I woke up and gave $50 this morning after hearing her speech last night. I dont think she should give up and I want to help her win the White House. This is the first time I have ever given money to a political party. I have two daughers and I am a college educated working mother and I would love to see Hillary as President – she has the experience and connections that Obamba does not have. GO HILLARY !!!

    How pathetic do you have to be to knock someone for raising money? If you are so sure of your candidates ability to close the deal then you wouldn't be so rattled. Let the contest go down to the wire. Its obviously what the majority of people want if she is still winning states and getting 10 million in 24 hours from 80% new donors.

    GO GO HILLARY....just donated $500.00...and will do more...you are the one who will take us to new change we need. Obama will not even debate you in North Carolina because he can't. He doesn't know the facts or understands the questions. Obama is just another dumb ole Bush in sheep's clothing. GO HILLARY ALL THE WAY!!!

    As time goes on people will learn more about S. Obama's negative side. S. Clinton is a tenacious fighter and a winner! Go, Hillary!!!

    Just goes to show, some folks don't mind pouring their money down a rathole.

    But then, as the man said, nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

    Its quite unfortunate that Semnator Clinton has more money to harm the party more than she has these past few months. She is unelectable and she is trying with all her might to make Senator Obama unelectable. If she suceeds, she will go down in history as destroying the Dems. What a shame...

    You Clinton supporter are really drinking the kool-aid, Obama is expected to win Indiana, N. Carolina, Oregon, S. Dakota, Montana. Hillary's only chances are Kentucky and Virgina. She's out..... She can't catch up on the delegates. You Clinton supporters have a better chances of fantasizing the gas prices back to a $1.50 gal then fantasizing her into the presidency!!!!

    People are beginnig to realize that Senator Clinton is the only candidate who can beat mcCain in the general election.

    Plus, Hillary supporters are sick and tired of hearing about race and sick and tired of Obama playing the race card.

    It's getting bothersome that in 2008 we are still hearing about race.

    Hillary in 08'

    Sorry, the best part is missing! Notice Obama's votes in MI is NONE. That is why when Clinton has MI added on, she has +12,506 more than he; but if the uncommitted of 238,168 is supposed for Obama then he had more than she.

    Sorry, but I don't buy it. That info provides only projections made by the Clinton campaign. Their complete lack of honesty and integrity makes it impossible to believe their press statements. When the FEC comes out with a number, I'll believe it. Their campaign has continuously exaggerated their fund-raising claims, always hoping that people will have forgotten by the 20th of the following month. Remember last month when McAuliffe claimed that nearly all $20 million that they raised was available for the primary? Well, as it turns out only about $7 million was. They pulled this same stunt in February when only about $12 million of the $35 million they raised was available. They hope that people have a short memory and forget their lies by the third week of the following month. Far cry from nearly all and exactly why I don't want Hillary anywhere near the U.S. economy.

    Where is Obama getting his money....it sure isn't the poor blacks or poor college students???????????????

    Obama supporters: Do you really want your guy to win if he gets the nomination? If so, I would advise to cease the hateful postings about Senator Clinton and look for common threads and celebrate those.
    Otherwise, he is going down in flames.
    Fellow Clinton supporters, let us give this guy a look and see if he fits into the vision we see for America.
    If not, McCain will stroll into the White House.
    Extreme views on both sides will sink this country!

  24. Money down the drain...

    She won't win and she already has proven that she a very poor financial steward.

    But by all means keep giving. Maybe she can pay her debtors now. She's going down and she's taking your money with her.

    Tide turning? Are you kidding me? The Clinton spin is really quite astonishing. Suckers!
