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.

    About the delegates in Florida and Michigan

    Florida: both Clinton's and Obama's names appeared on balot, they both did not campaign in these two states Only Obama had TV ad there . The voters chose Clintion from the candidates, so it is fair to any candidates . If the Party agree to accept their votes think it shoulld not and don't need to recount, It wiil save time and money

    Michigan: because Obama took out his name from balot , may be under no choice , then voter only choose Clinton only, so ithey can consider to use caucas to determinte the delegates in Michigan

    If this were a presidential election, Hillary would be one state from winning the election. It is not the number of states. It is the quality of the states. Can Obama realistically win the election by losing all of the big blue states? Can Obama realistically win most of the small red states he took so far?

    Add up all the states he has won in his historic drive to become the nominee, including all of those small and deeply "red" Republican states where the Obama supporters boast of their candidate's transcendental appeal, and so far Obama has won in places representing 193 of the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency. Add up Clinton's victories thus far and she has triumphed in states representing 263 electoral votes.

  4. Election ??

    Yeah this bores me ! This was more fun when everyone is beating on HC on this blog. Now that CNN is trying to knock BO down, less people are participating in the blog. Please CNN can we go back to the good old days when 90% of your posting was negative on HC - you fun killers. BO negative is not exciting enough!!

    To the Hillary and Obama haters:

    You ALL disgust me. The trivialness of your arguments reminds me of recess in 5th grade. Perhaps a more fruitful discussion could be started about how us democrats are going to take on McCain in the fall? Because for all their blather, and foolish supporters hyperbole, the democratic candidates are very similar on the issues.

    What's the going price of a Democratic delegate if you devide the total spent in a state by the number of delegates won? The money raised and spent is way out of hand. So, wake up cheerleaders, either will make history but neither will change your lives. You've got to do that for yourselves. As far as I can tell only one candidates admits that nothing will really happen unless the people stay involved. If you believe that you can just donote money and vote for someone and go back to sleep then you're mistaken.

    Go Hillary? Why all the hate for Hillary? I wouldn't trust Obama as far as I can throw he's a good speech was Hitler.

    And as far as the black vote, they are voting for race, not qualifications – – – it's the old OJ voting block – – – they would vote for him no matter what he did or didn't do. Talk about using good judgement...HAH! Michelle O says she 'finally is proud to be an American' and gets NO criticism from the black much for using good judgement...and let's not forget Obama's real estate deal...where's all the disclosure on THAT deal? Hypocrite!

    Tim, racism and sexism have prevailed in this election. It's too bad that all the work we did in the 60's were to no avail. We should elect the better candidate for our parties nominee and that is clearly Hillary Clinton. The seixt white male needs to wake up and give her their vote. As Barry Goldwater's campaign said (to paraphrase), "in your heart you know she's right."

    Hillary up 15 in Pennsylvania (up from around 10 before Tuesday)

    Hillary within 4 in North Carolina (was around 15 before Tuesday)

    Hillary up 5 in Nationwide poll for Democratic nominee.

    The writing on the wall is clear. Those of us in the Keystone State can't wait until April 22 to make it official. I hope BHO has a "dropping out of the race" motivational speech ready that night.

    Now, Obama will lie again, and say he raised twice as much, like he always does. Wonder why the truth is not in him?

    If she were smart, she would have kept this to herself. Now Obama will have the fodder to double it.

  17. observer...Florida

    I have just read from another newsmedia that Republicans helped Hillary to win....They took Rush's advice.The article says that out of every 10 votes,there is 1 Republican vote for Hillary......That explains why Obama is leading in the caucuses.

    she won Texas but lost the delegate race in Texas no doubt there will be great complaints from her campaign. And one of her supporters ran off with the papers got caught though at a police station I wonder if she will reject and denounce this sort of behavior.

    Why on Earth should Hillary be required to release her tax info before the deadline to file? She will release all info on April 15 get off her case. While we are at it have Obama release all his info pertaining to Revco. And I love how "the total is considerably higher" and yet Obama still didn't win Texas or Ohio. So much for that! Hillraisers keep giving!!!!!!!!!

  21. Obama for President

    Yeah but Obama still leads in his fundraising and GUESS WHERE Hillary got her ideas ABOUT FUNDRASING???? You got it from Obama after seeing how much the people had raised for him, so whose the XEROX queen now???? YES PEOPLE Hillary's fundraising strategy come from the ideas man and the ACTION man himself, Mr. Obama!!!! So who really has shown creativity and ability to inspire and LEAD, Mr. Obama!!!!!!!

    BTW, Hillary only won and not BIG as her husband and other strategists were claiming she needed to win, in Ohio... There's only a 3% difference between her and Mr. Obama in Texas. not what most of us would consider winning BIG.....

    HE STILL LEADS!!!!!!

    For those saying that Obama poured money into texas at a 2:1 ratio and still lost, keep this in mind. 2-3 weeks ago he was behind in the polls by 20 points so of course he had to spend more just to catch up. Plus, he may end up being the real winner in Texas. Did the spending work? Of course it did. He erased a 20 point deficit in 2 weeks and tied or beat Hillary. Look at it from that point of view.
    Obama all the way!!!
