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.

    All that shows is that HRC supporters are perfectly happy throwing good money after bad. I have a bridge you can buy too, since you like making investments that won't pay off.

    HRC is still in debt and like her husband–worthless! CNN simply extrapolated a lie about raising money yesterday ($500K in 2 hrs) so what. CNN, you put the story out there now validate it. Need to see some records. You'll find this too to be lie!!!

    Hey that's just great! Pay off those debts and run your campaign into the ground taking the Democratic chances of a President with you! Just bloody fantastic! At a cost of $1 million per day to run your campaign that will get you through next week...with considerably more debt. Care to guess how the country will be run if her campaign is the cluster that it is now?

    End the Drama...Vote Obama! No Obama = Go McCain!

    End the Lies!

    I am not for Hillary. I don't believe in her or a word that flies out of her mouth. I will say this, however...

    It's about freaking time you all caps using, narrow minded little sheep finally put your money where your big fat mouths are. Your candidate is seriously in debt and she needs your cash! She's always had your hate spreading and fear mongering but now she has a little money to at least pull herself out of the hole.

    If she got $10 million she's now at an even keel. Isn't she lucky?

    Just keep believing her lies that she can win and keep pouring your money down the hole. When it is all said and done and she loses just make sure you keep sending your money in to make sure we do not have a Mc Bush presidency.

    Good for Senator Clinton. I hope she pays her vendors–you know the little guys she has left out in the cold that she is supposed to be championing?

    She needs every penny of it and more to continue to do her dirty politics.

    She raised 10M in a day. She also dodged sniper fire. Those cork screw landings are tough.

    Do you believe a pathological liar? I dont.

    this just made me donate more to Obama's campaign.

    Keep fighting Obamania and the Obamedia. Those people are very, very scarey and bitter clinging to excuse and excuse on a liability branded nominee and one that can't seal the deal. November will be a nightmare without Clinton!

    The media likes a good fight. We all know that Senator Clinton was the inevitable canditate six months ago. Now, she is the underdog. What gives? Time will reveal that Senator Obama is a better candidate than Senator Clinton.

    We are 100% behind you Hillary and the superdelegates should recognize your victories the sooner the better.

    Go Hillary!!!

    I'll believe it when I see it................10 million will pay the debt..........now how about the 1 milllion a day for the next 13 days for campaigning?????? Her voter base cannot afford contributions and the big contributors are maxed out within IRS Guidelines....... So now what??? The DNC and Super Delegates will want to see financial earning power to show the ability to raise funds for the general election........... she will have difficulty. This is just like corporate america folks.

    At last, the Clinton camp is getting out of debt! Hopefully...

    People, is this really who we can trust with the U.S. economy? She can't even run her own campaign. Most of the people who donated to her camp are rich old folks. She may try, but she will never catch up.

    Impressive victory results in a great fundraiser for the campaign! But that aside, must be incredibly frustrating for Obama to have out spent her 3 to 1 and can not close the deal. People just won't vote for someone unless they feel good about them. Super delgates, take note!

    I already voted for Barack in the NC primary last Thursday and I hope he wins this state.

    To Sharon, Raleigh NC, you say you want a fighter in the White House? We have one. I'll give you a clue, he's unintelligent, arrogant, and wants to fight with any country that he can before he leaves office so someone else can clean up his mess. Do you know who I am talking about?

    I am a Math Professor who has compiled all statistics that show that Obama fares better against McCain than HRC and he carries the BIG states versus McCain.
    Obama wins the Big States against McCain including PA and furthermore wins SIX more States than HRC in this 18 state sampling versus McCain.
    Obama wins 13 states over McCain, Ties 3 states, loses 2 states
    Wins: NJ, MA, CA, PA, Maine, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Oregon, Colorado, Nevada, Washington. Ties in Texas, NC, NH Loses in Ohio, WV.
    HRC by contrast wins only 7 states over McCain, Ties 3 states, loses 7 states
    Wins: PA, Ohio, NJ, CA, MA, Maine, WV. Ties in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Oregon. Loses in Iowa, Michigan, NC, Colorado, Nevada, Washington, NH

    Clinton is spinning again. She DIDN'T have the most popular votes. The data from realclearpolitics (notice votes for Obama stay the same
    The popular votes don't include the caucuses in IA, NV, ME, WA.They are only estimates. The whole number sets:
    State Date Obama Clinton Spread
    Popular Vote Total 14,417,134 49.2% 13,916,781 47.5% Obama +500,353 +1.7%

    Estimate w/IA, NV, ME, WA* 14,751,218 49.3% 14,140,643 47.2% Obama +610,575 +2.1%

    Popular Vote (w/FL) 14,993,348 48.3% 14,787,767 47.6% Obama +205,581 +0.7%

    Estimate w/IA, NV, ME, WA* 15,327,432 48.4% 15,011,629 47.4% Obama +315,803 +1.0%

    The explaination * and ** are as follow:
    *(Iowa, Nevada, Washington & Maine Have Not Released Popular Vote Totals. RealClearPolitics has estimated the popular vote totals for Senator Obama and Clinton in these four states. The estimate from these four Caucus states where there are not official popular vote numbers increases Senator Obama’s popular vote margin by 110,224. This number would be about 50,000 less if the Washington primary results from February 19th were used instead of the Washington Caucus results.)

    **(Senator Obama was not on the Michigan Ballot and thus received zero votes. Uncommitted was on the ballot and received 238,168 votes as compared to 328,309 for Senator Clinton.)

    All MAXED OUT donors hoping to get Bill back in the white house. When will she realize that the majority of her supporters are voting for her husband, and not for her?

    I've donated three... four... five times(???) to the campaign already. Some more money is heading over there too. To Obama, that is.

    How was yesterday a game changer?

    She's still behind in total votes, delegates and even with the infusion of $10mm is just barely out of debt. Everything is the same except to those with false hopes of winning the nomination.
