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.

    It is not Hillary that extended the whole progression of problems for the Dems. Obama did not give his just due to the party first and "earn his spot" for the nomination. He tried to "elbow" his way in front of Hillary and upset the whole apple cart. If he was a VP for Hillary now, his stature and experience levels would rise so that he would be "deserving" of the nomination later. He is not ready for the presidency as Hillary has pointed out by her actions and speeches. I love Obama as a candidate for presidency – but only in due time. Right now is Hillary's time- she is tough and will face down the Arabs that are giving us problems in the Middle East. She will also fix our domestic and economic problems. Even against Russert, Matthews, and the Olbermans of the wold and millions spent against her- she WON !!! By 10 points too !!

    You have got to be kidding on the RCP thing right? I just went there. Only if you inlclude FL *and* MI (where Obama had no votes) does Hillary show a lead. That lead ~12,000 when an estimate of the caucus states is added in. Do you really think that Obama would get less than 12k in MI? What a joke.

    HRC is nearly 600k behind by all reasonable measures and will only fall further behind before this think is over.

    This is coming from a lifelong Republican who is considering a vote for Obama. I will never vote for Hillary.

    Are we in a Recession? Where do people get this kind of money to support a loser? Maybe the ecoomy is fine after all.

    Obama supporters are some of the most petty, immature people I have ever encountered. "Well, we'll raise more, nana nana nana." This is an election to determine the president, not a popularity contest or American Idol. Get over yourselves!

    This announcement just prompted me to donate....

    to Obama.

    I want to send a message to Hillary that I don't appreciate being talked down to, and I definitely don't appreciate her hypocrisy. On one hand she wants this to play out until the end "so everyone gets their voice heard" and on the other hand she wants that voice to be squashed because "Since i'm in the lead in the final states, I'm the most electable, so I should be the nominee."

  14. lol

    he outspends her in some markets as high as 5-1, and he still can't close the deal. good for hillary raising this much cash. fight on hillary! even though he raises a ridiculous amount of cash, it just goes to show he can't buy the presidency. drop out obama, your a divisive, polarizing figure. you are tearing the democratic party apart.

    I don't know what you obama people are drinking. you keep saying Hillary can't win enough delagates to be nominated. well neither can your mr. wonderful. you call for Hillary to quit. well i am calling for obama to quit. all you young whippersnappers out there have a lot to learn. we are voting for a person who can lead this country, not a johnny come lately rock star. sit back and listen and learn.

    She got my greenbacks and will get more if she needs it. She deserves the nomination, not the other one.

    Wow... now she can pay off part of her debt, HAHAHAHA! Hillary is such a JOKE.

    If you Hillary supporters notice, the Obama supporters aren't worried. We know this will go to June at least. She won't stop damaging the party. She doesn't care about the people of America, and she doesn't care about you.

    Unlike a lot of Hillary crybabies I will say that if she DOES somehow manage to buy this election through back-room promises and political games I will still vote for her as a protest against McBush. But mark my words, if it's Hillary she will lose dreadfully to McCain.

    I'm not that worried about it, though. Obama will still win, Hillary will go back to being a slimy politician.

    GO OBAMA! $42 million in the BANK!!!

  21. Brian from NYC

    And 5% of that 10 million will pay interest to the LOAN she LOANED herself! If Hillary is President it will equal 4 years of fighting, she'll listen to a presentation about Iran then go to war with them, and we'll be worse off then we are now! Of course most of the people voting for her probably won't be alive to see this, but they are 70 and older!

    AI have to believe that people will come to their senses and realize the only way we can have change is to tell the Bush's and Clinton's good-bye. This is our chance!!! Don't blow it because of fear of the unknown!

    Congrats, Hillary! Now you can pay off your back debts.

    Wait.....if she can pull her campaign out of debt won't she be able to control our national debt and still do great things?
