Clinton campaign raises $3 million in a day

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Clinton's campaign said it raised $3 million in the day after its string of victories."](CNN) - Hillary Clinton’s campaign has raised $3 million online since her string of victories Tuesday night, an aide said Thursday.

Since lending her campaign $5 million shortly before the February 5 Super Tuesday contests, Clinton’s fundraising fortunes have improved considerably, though Barack Obama’s campaign has continued to outspend her.

Donations to Clinton’s campaign climbed from $14 million in January to roughly $35 million in February. Obama’s campaign raised $36 million in January, and has not yet released its February fundraising numbers. His advisers have said only that the total is “considerably higher” than Clinton’s.

The New York senator won three out of four Democratic primaries Tuesday night, beating Obama in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island. Obama claimed a victory in Vermont.

1:00 p.m. UPDATE: Clinton's campaign announced it has raised $4 million since Tuesday's contests and $6 million in the month of March.

    Well Brian... if you think voting for Obama will lead to a socialist government....... You will definitely not want to support Hillary and her socailized healthcare plan!! I hope you are planning to vote for McCain, because that will be your only remaining viable option.

    "The Clinton campaign has been raising $3 million a day since Clinton's victories Tuesday, a campaign adviser tells CNN."

    A day? That would be one day. Let;s separate exaggerations and facts.

    How sad Obama has had these figures since the end of February, but did not release them unitl the Clinton campaign announced their $3 million dollars raised in 24 hours. I had noticed that they had been alluding to "over 50 million in the month of February" Each of their fundraising announcements was made AFTER THE Clinton campaign announced their figures. Obvously to take the wind out of the sails of the Clinton campaign. I am proud to be a donor to the Hillary Clinton campaign. Many of her supporters did not realize fundraising was needed until AFTER she loaned her campaign money. At that point, we all started chipping in. Thank goodness we believe in Hillary Clinton. Thank goodness our candidate was focusing on the issues important to us like health care, american jobs, green energy and the mortgage crisis to name a few. Thank goodness she was able to compete with half the funds...and thank goodness she is moving forward.

    I saw an exit poll that said "very few" republicans had cast their votes for Hillary, despite Coulter and Limbaughs comments to do just that. That's because Hillary is a DEMOCRAT. (That has reached across the aisle on numerous bills...something Obama has NOT done. However, Obama has been touting his Republican votes as a strength.

    Anyone who does not see the Republican motives in voting for him in the democratic primary, is not someone I want as my President. To use this arguement as "unifying" is naive. It certainly is not the Republican based- conservatives, who are voting for him. They voted for Romney and Huckabee. Nor is it the Republican moderates. McCain is their man! His votes seem to be coming from the "ditto heads" who realized the Republican nominee was a foregone conclusion, so they padded our primary with votes for someone they feel sure to beat in November. Come on your eyes. Voting is not only a priveledge, it is a responsibilty. Please, vote, responsibly.

    What are chances of an American family making it to the white house in their lifetime? How selfish, power hungry, and self-serving do you have to be, to think you actually deserve this honor twice in a lifetime. It would be amazing to have a female president, but isn't there another woman who is more deserving than someone who has already spent 8 years there? Unbelievably, selfish.
