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.

    Obama keeps digging his own holes to fall in. How could he have managed to say stupid things like the "bitter" stuff? Any freshman in Pol Sci 101 knows not to offend the very people you want votes from.
    He is too clumsy, too gloomy. Even he can't wear shiny jewelries or change bright wardrobs like Clinton, don't frawn so much. Please, Obama, be more relevant. No matter how much money you collect, what comes out your mouth matters the most.

    I looked on the website there isn't a place to get my donation back that she wasted just like all of the other money that will go for not.

    What a lair!
    It says on TRACK! And watch – they won't get it.

    90% of Hillary donors have already reached their max. for giving.

    That's why she only got 20-million in March!

    Hillary – Indiana is a republican state – haven't been won by a Democate since 1934 or 1964!

    Also – 90% of people don't vote until Nov. – get over it already and stop with the lies!

    Wonder how much Senator Clinton loaned herself to make this happen? Who can trust a word she says? Sorry, not me.

    I don't think money and buying ads this late in the game mean much.
    I think everyone has made up their minds. If money had made a difference than why hasn't he sown this up? Maybe its because it just drives away more people when he and his supporters call white people racists? which he is himself.
    In the end he is a loser anyway. All he can carry are blacks, the elite media, far way leftys. too many others out there.
    Some of the left wing media looked sick and scowley last night.
    With age comes wisdom.

  15. You do have nerve

    You Obama supporters have nerve – I will say that much for you. Obama has raised a ton of money and still cannot close the deal. I am happy for Hillary that she has gotten that amount of money and if she needs to pay off her campaign debts – so what – its none of your business.

    In the long run, its the amount of votes that count not the amount of money. And as for all the continuous name calling of Hillary – you seem to somehow think she is fair game. Well guess what – we Hillary supporters will not forget how crude you people really are and if he turns out to be the nominee – well Obama supporters – you just lost the Presidency for him.

    HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT!!! YEAH!!

  17. EXPERIENCE PLEASE!

    Keep it up Hillary!

    If you don't have to fight for it, it is not worth having.

    You have a lot of support in Texas!

    If Hillary was that broke she should have not ran for president. The Clintons only want to get back in office to live a LIE again. Now she can afford to get out of debt with the 10M and then start begging again.
    Maybe if she was honest, she would not be BROKE.

    I read that she needs it because her supporters are not giving like Obamas. She can't seem to run a campaign budget and keeps running out of money. What do this tell the American public. Why don't you run that on CNN? Scared of the Clintons.

    Will it all go into campaign advertising, or does she actually intend on paying off her debts to vendors?

    What is going on? I wonder if it is Republicans who are donating to her campaign. Why would Democrats waste their money on her at this point? It doesn't make sense. She cannot win the nomination. Most Democrats want this phase of the battle to be over-it's the Republicans who want it to continue. I am very suspicious about this surge in fundraising. Will someone investigate?

    I'm white, 77years old, a catholic, active in democratic politics in Florida for the past twenty years – I worked hard for Bill Clinton's election- and I believe he did a great job as President – but I am ashamed of him now – and especially Hillary Clinton. who doesn't blink an eye when she lies – and the way she has tried to debase her opponent on every occasion is absolutely nauseating. The debate which was a trap for Obama (hasn't anyone read or listened to his magnificent speech on 'race.'? giving Hillary the opportunity to milk it until I wanted to throw my remote at the TV screen. I wonder if the hosts Stephanopoulos and Gibson were in cahoots with the Clinton campaign. They call her a 'fighter." – I call her a mean bully, the kind of person who will kick you until you fall, then lie, "I didn't do it – he started it first – A dangerous person to be leading our country in these trying times.
