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.

    Hillary does not need to collect what Obama did .She proved that with less She won the big swing States and a must win in order to win the WH.
    People start to wake up and see who really is the best, qualified and most prepared candidate.
    Like or not She is going to be the next President.

    The polls showed people without a collage degree and the old voters mostly supported Hillary.
    So its fair to say:
    No wonder some people DONT GET IT or SEE IT they lack knowledge therefore they are easily led kinda like cattle on a farm.
    It's fair to say 'YA CANT TEACH OLD DOGS NEW TRICKS' thats why Hillary can Lie Lie Lie and these 'old dogs' will still vote for her cuz they want the same 'old politics'
    Its the same 'old politics' why Gas is through the roof now $4/gal, your children will go to WAR in Iran (HILLARY SAID IT), the lobbyist and special interest groups will control the white house cuz the 'old politics' candidate (Hillary) is bought and you will lose your homes and your jobs shipped overseas!
    Dont Come Crying!

    No More Drama Vote Obama!!

    She has to get out. I'm tired of her and what she's doing to the party.

    I used to support her, but we need new life in our leadership. We need Barack Obama!

    This should be fuel for Obama supporters to raise a ton of money for April. This would show the Clintons they can never raise enough money even with all their elitist connections and old Washington money. All she is doing if pissing off more and more people who want to stop fueling the McCain fire.

    Hillary is the best candidate for years! She is smart, clever and understands the difficult tasks that lay ahead, not as this cheery cheery boy BHO.

    Before you begin spending all that money for new campaign efforts, Mrs. Clinton, maybe you should think about paying off your DEBT! Is this how you plan to run the country? Not my idea of a responsible leader!
    Obama '08 Yes we can!

    I don't believe she raised $10million. This is another Clinton stunt, to make it seem like she raised more money, than she actually has. Did she give herself another loan?

    Either way, it's money terribly spent. In two weeks, she'll be smoked in NC and IN, and it will all be over (officially) quickly, or slowly.

    Pick your poison Senator Clinton.

    What I do not understand why would people give Hillary10 million dollars after a Pennsylvania victory in a state where she had ZERO chance of losing. I am an older white male so I can say this, race was an issue with the older people, The younger people get it, but they still do not come out to vote like the older folks. If they did this race would have been over a month ago. Why is is so hard for them to vote??????

    Michelle Obama took thousands of bribes after her husband was elected to the IL Senate, just google.

    Haha. I love how all these Clintonites are hoopla-ing about their fundraising.

    I guess when you are operating in the red, a few million is a big deal.

    Maybe she can actually afford to buy some advertisements now.

    Hillary is laughing all the way to the bank because she is getting her supporters to pay off the debt her campaign has incurred before Obama puts her away in North Carolina. Now she won't have to dip into her personal millions to pay the debt. If how she managed her campaign operation is any indication of how she would manage the Office of President, its a good thing she isn't going to be the nominee.
    Obama 2008 & 2012!

    Probably a waste of $10 million. North Carolina is expected to go heavily toward Obama. If the remaining SuperDelegates who haven't announced their support go 50/50, NC goes 55% to Obama, and Indiana is split 50/50, Hillary will need 77% of the vote in remaining states.

    You can call her a fighter for staying in and damaging the Party when the odds were long against her and getting longer by the day. You can call her a fighter for sticking by a cheating husband. You can call her those things if you want. I'll call it the power obsession of a weak fool.

    You're just paying to get her our of debt... she CAN NOT win the nomination. And if she does... this party with not get into the white house for another 8 years

    Say thank you to the media which gifted you your 10% victory. Forget about the fact that it was only an 8.6% victory! They have a monied interest in keeping alive the myth of a Clinton "victory" because it is more profitable for them. Nevermind the math, the delegate count, the popular vote, the number of states won, and the rules of the election. What is truly sad is all this money is going to be used to tear down the democrats nominee because Hillary cannot accept the reality of her situation. It sounds like another female temper tantrum on a national scale that drags everyone around them down so she can feel better about herself. Sound familiar gentleman? If a man were to act like this he would get punched in the face. You are right, a double standard does exist.

    Obama... Mr. "I have a problem with..." EVERYONE! He's such a whiner. He needs to go back to his play-pen for another term as Senator and THEN maybe he can claim to have what it takes to lead this country.

    My husband and I support Hillary very much- we're not old.. we're not not progressive.... we're realists with a young family and a future to worry about.

    'Nuff said.

    Go Hillary. Make us proud again!!!!!

    And yes, my husband and I have contributed to your campaign
