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.

    More Americans have cast their votes for Hillary than Obama (via Real Clear Politics, this includes votes in FL and Michigan. In effect it's already giving Hillary a win in the popular vote). And now people are once again sending the money into Clinton's campaign. I donated this morning, and was really proud to do so. Hillary is a fighter, and we need that. Our countries enemies are not going to be disuaded by pretty words. We need a fighter, not a talker for President. Hillary Clinton will be that president.

    Yes, "let Hillary find comfort where she can" so she and B.O. will keep fighting through the Sep convention and all the Dem voters will change party.

    Jeff, dont believe everything you read on-line. Hillary is doing fine, and I will be sending her 1000.00 today to make sure of that. Also, check your math, Hillary leads the "popular vote".

    Why is it that the Obama supporters on line are so hateful? You make people hate your candidate even more when you call Clinton names and bash people who voted for her. You do not help him.

    Be big enough to say Hillary won. Move on. Calling fellow democrats dumb and dismissing the work of both Clinton's is why you will have a hard time getting our support IF Obama wins the nomination. Try talking about issues, if you know what they are.

    i wonder about the super delegates,they could have ended this ages ago, clinton just has to have her own way like a spoilt child, how many lobbyists are pulling strings behind the scenes, the young vote should tell people everything,they are ones who will have to fight for america if necessary, if hillary clinton is the one we have to rely to push the nuclear button heaven help us,she would scream for bill,and he would put an account in for doing it, as for diplomacy, forget it ,diplomats have to have credence, she dosnt , its all about her, shes a real "I" surgeon.

    The game has not changed Hillary, Senator Obama was able to narrow the gap in Pennsylvania from 20 points to 10 points.

    The best line about the Penn primary so far is still on Time's coverage: "The true winner of the Pennsylvania Democratic primary is John McCain." The Republicans have such a head start on the autumn campaign that I despair about how many attack ads McCain's people will have time to craft, unmolested.

    But I'm personally getting ashamed of identifying as a Democrat, too. "We" can't cooperate on anything or get a thing done. If either Obama or Clinton dropped out at this point and supported the other, the Democrats could sweep the November election.

    Instead, they'll fight like two cats in a sack. Hillary will drop out at the last possible second with the same bad grace she's run the entire campaign with, probably with comments regarding her hurt feelings. Obama will be savaged by both an increasingly opportunistic John McCain and smear ads created by right-wing xenophobe demagogues, as he wonders – as I am wondering – how and why on Earth anyone would or even could lead this sorry lot of partisan lunatics into some kind of effective leadership structure for the nation.

    Less ego and more realization that there's actually a country to lead and govern at the end of all this hullabaloo would be welcome, on all sides of the fence!

    The whole Clinton Campaign is full of lies. i don't believe anything they say anymore. I'm an Obama supporter, i know he is going to win the Presidency it's just a matter of time. if somehow Hillary is given the nomination for the democrats, ill vote for John McCain Bush , at least that way i'll only get stabbed from the front.

    My Lord I wonder who she didn't pay or how much of that is favor money? The last I heard and read Clinton was in the red. Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear when it come to Clinton and money.

    She only won by 9.2%age points. Barack Obama closed her DOUBLE DIGIT (and I am not yelling, just emphasizing) gap!!!! I used to think that she should stay in the race because it was her choice. But now I understand why she should get out. She is going to get really, really nasty; and this type of attitude will not bring congress together.

    Hillary supporters she is simply not a uniter!

    Hillary needs to get off her high horse and beat it. She couldn't even keep her husband in control and now you want her to run a nation???. She had her chance and lost it. You people need to wake up and move on – she's lost already!

    Clintons don't need money from poor working people. Why don't they pump in their own money. They have enough already ($105 millions for last 6 years and many more to come...they also got $5 million from Dubai recently). Share it with poor PA white working voters who voted for her. I wonder if she would......

    We've had Clintons and Bush for last 20 years !! Too long!! They failed us. I am willing to give a chance to Obama. And Clinton Camps: stop playing "politics of Fear".....

    Hillary is killing her own party by staying in the race, just give it up and generate the money you need to run 4 years down the road. We need change in america to get things going again, not another scandal or a Mathew Lawensky (ie. Hillary Affair). Bill watchout a women usually gets revenge!!!

    It makes you wonder if Elections are pre-determine. If your bloodline can't be traced to the fake kings and queens of the past you don't have a chance in America.

    Screw the election process 08

  22. Ostriches burying our heads in the sand

    Have you noticed how the clinton campaign has called the PA victory a 'game-changer'? How is a state where she had the support of the likes of Rendell and Nutter, whose demographics were tailor-made for her, where she had a twenty plus lead sometime back and she finally won by 9.3 points, a game-changer????

    As for raising money online, good for her- atleast her supporters are sending her some money now. Barack's NEVER had to worry about that- I just donated again to him...We got his back....

    So true -–

    Hillary – tears "I love this country"
    Hillary – Why are they always picking on me
    Why do I get the tough questions and have to go first... maybe becasue you won't be quiet and you always interupt.

    You kow their is something to said about silence sometimes. She just goes on and on and says anything., When people won't stop talking they are lying and will say things they do not remember.

    Hillary you fo complain..

  25. Caferty Please Read

    Hillary has a website asking for money but she doesn't show you progress by each donor. That is how she will run the Whitehouse if ever she were to get in there (which I doubt more than ever).

    On Barack's website, it s hows a ticker to each donor so I can check it every day several times and see how much closer we are to our goal. He gives you more information! That is how he will be in the Whitehouse. More information!!!

    Cafferty! Why hasn't anyone brought up the three movies, Hillary Clinton The Movie, Hillary Clinton It's All a Big Lie, and The Clinton Chronicles? Every thing about Barack has been investigated, what about investigating Clinton for a change and giving her a taste of her own medicine?????????? Caferty please address this.
