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.

    Give as much as you can.

    The country and your future is at stake.

    Hillary will work for ALL Americans.

    Obama divided us by race, gender, age, income and education.

    I was of the impression that money doesn't help to win. So why does she need money?

    So essentially donating to the Clinton campaign equates to us, the American people, paying off millions of dollars of campaing debt for a person who is already a multi-millionaire. Why are we so stupid?

    Obviously there are people in having too much money and willing to throw it out of the window. Being able to count they should know that it´s a wasted effort.

  8. Obama is a GODSEND

    Give, Listen to what your saying. I think the divider is clearly Hillary, she is tearing us apart w/ no hope to win this nominee...She just wants a chance at 2012 after she neuters Obama and he loses to Grandpa Munster.

  9. god bless Hill

    It is in God's hands now.

    The bandwagon boosted Obama and the media bias elevated him to rock star status. I hope it is not too late.

    We want the best president, not the most popular American Idol winner.

    Please just give a ticket home. That is what she really needs.

    The influx of cash is from The Republican party. Can't you see that the republicans are pusing her to win. Just last night Keith Oberman stated the the head of the RNC wrote a 30 page letter in support on Billary.

  12. Yes we can!

    Excuse me Obama Nuts, his bills were recorded and his outstanding debt is about $650,000 and he still has over $40 million left and still getting donations....It's very weird how people will defend the clintons when people are stating they have not gotten paid from being vendors from super tuesday.....if you can't manage your campaign funds, then how are you going to manage the economy.....

    While it's possible that her campaign raised that amount, I will believe it when the FEC reports come out in late May. Her campaign does have a history of exaggerating.

    Google "Kathy Callahan clinton campaign" and find out how Hillary is getting her so called donations. She's stealing it from the people who have previously donated!

    Hopefully she can pay for more fear mongering ads like the one she showed the night before PA election featuring video of Osama bin Laden. Keep up the Rove tactics, Hillary!

  21. screwed

    She would be our nominee now if the party and the DNC and the media had not adored Obama and pandered to him- while screwing Hillary Clinton every which way.

    Americans do not like it when you don't play fair, but are willing to win by cheating. No to Obama and his thugs.

  22. She Can't Hide Her Lying Eyes

    She'll need it to keep her lies going.

    Isn't it funny that Hillary asks her donors to "give" to her campaign......but yet she's only willing to lend to it??

    Oh, that's right. They are un-educated Hillbilly racists.

    Political campaign finances must be limited. This is the only way we can keep special interest groups out of politics. Allowing any candidate to spend their way into office is not in the best interests of the country.
