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.

    I don't buy that at all. of course she is going to say that. When was the last time she said anything true. I will attempt to believe it when an independent source confirms this. besides she is in debt to the tune of over $15 million so she is breaking even.

    All I can say is "A fool and his money soon part." I still cannot believe that people are foolish enough to believe in someone who lies, cheats and steals.....from them!

    That is an average of 100 dollars per person. But I guess some rich Saudi guy contributed his change too.

    Bill so much for the illicit contracts!

    OPERATION CHAOS is a SUCCESS!

    Dumb democrats, keep up the fighting. Hillary is the one to go up against McCain. Just imagine it 2 old people (just make sure there'e enough Ensure and Billary takes her hormone pills for the hot flashes and mood swings), one pushing a Bush 3rd term and the other pushing a Clinton 3rd term.

    Great, America don't want change. We like more of the same. War War and more War, Foreclosure Foreclosure and more Foreclosure, Higher gas prices Higher gas prices and finally $5 a gallon gas prices. PLEASE STRENGTHEN Clinton's NAFTA agreements of the past that put so many Americans in the unemployment line. PLEASE MORE NAFTA.

    No We Can't 2008!

    Wow, what an uninspiring November election we are going to have.

    Thanks dumb democrats for heeding Operation Chaos!!!

    It's good if they raised 10ml. Last I read they had 9ml in debt, so they are a shade above the game. It still doesn't compare to Obama's war chest, or his lead in the popular vote, or his lead in pledged delegates, but let Hillary finf comfort where she can.

    That ten million will just cover the overdue bills that have come in from the last 2 months. Good Luck!

    Why can't Obama close this thing? Because people are starting to get that Obama talks a good game but in reality his is nothing more than an empty suit. Some people might not like Hillary Clinton, but she is the Democrats only chance to beat McCain. Obama has demonstrated he can't take the heat. HRC, on the other hand, is a fighter, who has already proven that she can withstand more than the GOP can throw against her in the fall. Obama looked like a pouty little boy at the debate. HRC wiped the floor with him. McCain will do the same in the fall when people really start thinking about his lack of experience and the company he keeps. Wake up people! HRC is the democrats only hope.

    ANOTHER TRICK THAT WILL NOT WORK. IT IS IN HER DNA TO MAKE UP STORIES AND THIS IS ONE OF MANY.

    Hooray Hillary! This is great!

    Americans are rallying to send you money so you can pay all those bills owed to poor hard-working people for whom you fight!!

    Oh, and the $4.5 mill to Mark Penn too.

    April 23, 2008 04:43 pm at 4:43 pm |
  25. tom

    Good, now she can off her debts of $10 million. Read where she owes mark Penn, $4 million. Hope she pays him first as he has done her campaign such a great service.
