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 am donating again! There are a lot of quiet Americans out there that don't get on here and spew hate-speech. But we know how to vote. And even when groups are "eliminated" (FL and MI) it just makes the rest of us madder. And I will not vote for someone I think is just lying fluff.

    Go Hillary – fight the deceptive, rich, connected, ivy-league, elite, negative, cult leader.

    If you look at Obama's website, they post the number of people who have donated, and the numbers are going up very fast. No dollar amount is shown, tho it would be interesting to see a comparison between the two.

    I would have the FEC look into the real numbers. Truth and truth in numbers are NOT something that come out of the Clinton camp.

    The napalm tactics coupled with begging for $5 like a late-night preacher with a Rolex have all the dignity of a.....republican campaign.

    It’s NOT for the American people or the Democratic party but for the Clinton EGOs!

    Count your 30 pieces of silver Hillary as you've sold your soul to the "right wing conspiracy", the republican attack machine and Bush/McCain...

  5. In oregon and want change

    That has got to be a lie,
    or they found a way to stuff the people with NAFTA their promise to keep NAFTA going once elected so they probably donated big time
    they don't care about PA they are already going on about who to lie to next to try to get their vote and just ditch them too.

    Maybe now the campaign can establish good credit by paying its bills!

    She's out of her mind. She needs to win 60-40 the rest of the way, and that's including winning 60-40 in the remaining superdelegates, which she won't and she can't. Her stubbornness is obnoxious. I'm not even a big Barack fan and I think she's acting so pitifully stupid right now.

    More lies intended to "convince" the spineless superdelegates that are out there.

  10. Hillary Will Win

    To all you Obama supporters. Why is that Obama can't win any BIG states? That's because people don't TRUST him.

    GO HILLARY!

    Hillary 08'

    wow the more I read these post the more I realize how bitter some Obama supporters are. To each its own. I donated 50 bucks(i'm a college student) to her campaign last night so I do not see why others couldn't have. I support her based on the issues not race or gender. I really hope all Americans really do their research and not just listen to speculation and speeches. Whether you are for Obama or Clinton I respect you as long as you can at least name one issue that concerns you and know what both candidates have to say about the issue.

    If Hillary is so high and mighty about health care, then why doesn't she provide health care for her campaign workers????

    Just something to think about.

  20. Tan in Dallas

    I think she can achieve that goal pretty soon. I've personally donated 4 times and each time $100. I'm going to continue to give until she wins!!

    Go Hillary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Republicans will stop at nothing... so neither should you. Whatever it takes. No need to worry HRC. Many of us who have been around for the last elections understand exactly what you need to do and proudly support you for doing it. It is time for another donation to Hillary. If the rest of the party wants to elect another McGovern, they will do so at their undoing. It is either you, or we will help destroy the Democratic party as we know it today. After all the lost elections, the McGovern's the Obama's etc, it might be exactly what we need to do.

  24. Enough

    She can raise 10 gazillion dollars in 2 hours and it won't change the numbers. Her expected win last night didn't change the numbers enough to make a difference.
