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.

    Let the Hillary-supporters throw their money behind Hillary. Hillary is going to use their money to run hard in Indiana and pay off her campaign debt.

    The 9pt margin of victory in PA only nets Hillary at most 12 pledged delegates which drops Obama's lead in pledged delegates from 164 to 152 and drops his popular vote lead from 700,000 to 500,000.

    With Indiana (next door to Illinois) and North Carolina two weeks away, Obama will concentrate his effort on these two states to be his final firewall. If Obama takes both states on May 6th, the remaining states will look easily predictable. Final count April 22nd and after wins; Obama 5 and Hillary 3 with both splitting one each of the non-states votes (Guam & Puerto Rico).

    So she has the money to PAY MARK PENN AND COLUMBIA the money she owes them.

    WHAT A WASTE THIS WOMAN IS AND HER VOTERS ARE JUST AS STUPID FOR SENDING MONEY INTO SOMEONE WHO JUST MADE 109 MILLION in the last 6years.

    Why do Hillary supporters seem to be on a different planet?

    Why is she asking for money?

    Money isn't her only problem. There is no way she can win in the general election, if she can’t get members of her own party to vote for her.

    She talks about how the democratic party would suffer a great defeat if we disenfranchise Florida and Michigan, but that is exactly she is attempting to do with the 15+ million voters that have come out and stood in long lines, in the heat and the cold to vote for Obama. What is the Democratic Party to do without them?

    Additionally, once Black Americans voted in large groups as republicans, and since they made switch they have been if nothing else loyal to this party. This may be just the break the republicans need to make inroads with a group whom up until this point have remained so far out of reach. What do you really think would happen if the dems. changed the rules and gave her the nod, despite the fact that she lost by every measure that they proclaimed to be important before the race.

    Well, if I was McCain I would ask Rice to be my V.P. and walk thru the door that the dems. left wide open.

    I'm an independent and I'll never vote Clinton, NEVER. I will vote Obama and I have several Independent and Republican friends who are of the same mind. I predict that if Clinton STEALS the nomination from Obama then McCain will win in the Fall and you stupid Dems who have bought into the Clinton LIE machine will only have yourselves to blame.

    Although 10 million may be a bit inflated, my friends have rejioced and donated the maximum limits possible. I too have for the first time donated. The right, left, and media is pounding her for every word she, someone in her camagin, or someon ewho supprtos but is not affiliated with her says. The Internet has been spread with lies that may lead to her downfall. The Right couldn't take Hillary down in the 90's, so Barrack and 51% of the Democrats did it for them.

    News Flash for obama... he lost because he insulted Pa voters. and he lost because of his ties with domestic terrorist Ayres. I find it amusing, reading some of the whining from Obama supporters, some just need to get over it.. obama is not electable now!!!!! Go Hillary

    Obama has no one to blame but himself. He need to knock her out in N.C and Indiana and stop this MADNESS.

    I know it hard for a black man to hit hard at a white woman, but we are giving you permission to knock her out.

    The tide is turning for Hillary … Oh no it’s a Tsunami to wash her away.

    Go away Hillary!!! You will not have Rendell and Strickland in N.C and Indiana. What will you do?

    At that rate the avg. donation was $167.00. 60,000 people on average donated $167.00. I find that hard to believe. I wonder if her campaign ever lies about things?

    You know what Hillary is the best candidate, lets look at her campaign for example. She is 10 million in debt and had to fire more of her staff than any other candidate. I think her campaign should be an example of how she would run the country, and since her campaign has been run with amazing integrity, leadership, and great money management, I deem Hillary the best candidate...NOT! LOL!

    Perhaps the economy is weak because everyone is throwing money into bottomless pits such as these?

    Whooo hoooo.....GO HILL! We love you girl. Everyone knows you're the best suited for the job! Results, results, results. We already have HOPE...what we need is HELP, and only Hillary offers that!

    I donated for the 13th time last night. Go to her website and donate...even if its $5.00, it all adds up baby!

    "MADAM PRESIDENT"--- get used it Obama-bots!
