Clinton sees influx of campaign cash

Clinton has seen an influx in campaign cash since winning the Pennsylvania primary.
Clinton has seen an influx in campaign cash since winning the Pennsylvania primary.

NEW YORK (CNN) - Sen. Hillary Clinton's Pennsylvania victory seems to be helping her regain ground financially against rival Barack Obama, who has outraised her by tens of millions of dollars.

The day that followed Clinton's Pennsylvania win was the biggest day in the history of her campaign, according to Terry McAuliffe, her campaign chairman.

The New York senator raised $10 million through the Internet and had 80,000 new donors, he said.

Compare that to two months ago, when Clinton could not afford to pay staffers and even lent her campaign $5 million from her own pocket.

    I have seen many people doing an analysis of the vote but I have not seen anyone mentioning that 10 of Obama's wins were in states holding caucuses and only 1 of Hillary Clinton's were in Caucus states and that was Nevada. With a few more wins such as Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia that will mean that the two will be about equal in the number of states with primary elections won and the popular vote will most probably be extremely close if not about even.

    Why is that everytime I hear something this outrageous, the word LIE comes to mind. I have heard so many lies from both Hill and Bill that I no longer believe a word they say.

    The fact that she makes over 20M a year and begs for money is absolutely ridiculous.

    Just because you have heard her name consistantly in the news does NOT mean that she is a good person. Do you really want your children to look up to this women, her values and morals?????

    Please, I beg you, have an open mind and do your research. Old style politics must go!!

    Why do they indicate Hillary money a loan from her? Does that mean the rest of her subporters will get there money back also? If she want's the nomination so bad , she should leave her 5 mil. LOAN in there like the rest of her subporters.

  8. rigged for Obama

    The flawed caucus format gave Obama many more delegates per vote cast than Hillary gets from her primary wins.

    Obama is ahead by cheating.

    Especially in Fl and Mi.

    She will do ok. The Clinton supporters will make sure!

    Clinton is very experienced and will be a great president!

    Obama will not b/c he spoke so critical to the people of Pennsylvania. We do not need a president who slams the people. This is not good.

    Go Hillary.

    Clinton 08 :)

    joyce,
    Ever wonder what qualities Obama has that him better than Sen Clinton? "O" I know it is his
    1) in favor of Gun control?
    2) has a Race-seperatist preacher?
    3) is Friends with admitted, unrepentant terrorists?
    4) is friends with, and had his home finanaced by a felon slumlord?
    5) Higher taxes?
    6) no support for the military?

    Yeah – he's just like us!

    For thousands of people that are helping her to raise money; Hillary is hope now…People are seeing the light; it was too much Obama’s darkness.

    I am loving that she knows her supporters can just about afford to send $5. Funny that so many claim they will vote for McCain should she lose. If they do, they are going to find themselves needing that little picture of Lincoln to help them fill their tanks to go job hunting.

    Chances are at 0% the delegate math will work out for her. Do people not know this – or do they just like throwing money away?

    I don't believe a word of this. No one believes the Clinton's anymore. Where would that many new donors come from? Someone had better be looking closely at those records!

    How can you trust someone with our troubled economy who can't even manage their Primary campeign in the black?

    This is one former Republican who will be voting for Obama in both the Primaries and general this fall.

    Best money I ever spent - and continue to spend - by contributing to Hillary Clinton's campaign. It's for the safety and health and happiness of my children and grandchildren. I would never entrust them to a "snake charmer" like Obama. The American people are beginning to understand that - finally!

    There is so much talk of how much Obama spent on advertising in Pennsylvania. But Obama had to out spend Hillary. Every since Obama entered the race he has had to work twice as hard, twice as long to be just as good or even better than Hillary. America has set the standards for African Americans achievement of success, Obama is playing by the rules with hope he can inspire this nation to be better, greater and leave all racial divides behind.

    Im seing some hostility from the supposid good NOT NEGATIVE politics from the OBAMA supporters. Obama may be ahead in delegate count but democrats are starting to see real issues with OBAMA something is wrong with him if they are still considering Clinton. She will get the Nomination
