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.

    This message is for Charlotte, The case has been approved for appeal. The judge just two weeks ago admonished David Kendall and reminded him that he didn't care if Hillary was served on the Campaign Trail. It is not over. Bill, Hillary and Chelsea are right now under supeonea to give depositons under oath. The trial will occur probably around the general election. I have been reading the court filings for days now. Unfortunately for us Democrats its not over.

    This is another political tactics the Hilary campaign are using,
    since they know that majority of their viewers or supporters do not verify or do their own research as to the accuracy of the news they received.

    The Obama campaign has already raised almost 6 millions dollars as of 12.00 midday today, but you will not hear them BRAGGGGGGGGGGGG about it.

    This is the campaign that have substance and real change for America.

    GO OBAMA GO………………………………………..

    WE NEED YOU, WE ARE BEHIND YOU ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go Hillary!! Despite Obama outspent her on ads 2-to-1 on Super Tuesday II and his new adorements, Hillary still came out the big winner that night winning Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island. I think people are finally realized inspirational speeches can only do so much, we need solutions and Hillary is the one who CAN and WILL deliver.

    Obama had 1 million contribute to his campaign long ago.. and recently in one day he got 1 million to make calls to someone. Just ordinary people, not wealthy rich folks.. but the common people of america. I was one of the 1 million and I didnt give much because with the economy I cant afford it... but I did give and I would encourage anyone to do the same... even if its only $10!

    Hillary is bluffing... have her show those records! Oh I forgot it would probably take 5 years or more to do so. Maybe a something will come of the news in court about some discrepancy in a few years from now like everything else she does.

    Her money comes from the people that believe in her. I get her emails quite often requesting pledges. I got from Obama once and replied back laughing. So you see, Obama is not above sending emails asking for donations either.

    to AnyoneButHillary
    because of such people as you there is this hateness.
    if you feel hate go to church and heal your soul.
    Hillary proved she is smart, courageious, experienced candidat and a fighter.
    She will fight the interest of working people till the end.
    And such candidate deserves to be the President of this great country.
    She has to fight not only other candidates but also all this biased sold media who only pretend to be objective but in reality started this ugly fight against both Clinton from the very start of the company.
    Many people being hypnotized by sweet Obama's speeches in one moment forgot how much good things Bill and Hillary did in their lifes for ordinary people ( and black people particularly) and turned agains
    It's a shame.
    I admire the courage with which Hillary continue her fights in spite of everything.
    Hope she 'll win.
    Again for this person whol hates her face I advice better to look at Bush

    Go Florida and Michigan!!!
    So much for the "Beauty Pageant" and the fact that ALL the "SO CALLED" experts like Shuster and Cooper and how they tillted the election coverages to favor Senator Obama...Now the crow will be served.
    The hatred for Senator Clinton will bite all the Obamanites in the buttocks. Including the Pro-Obama media.

    I donated $100 to Hillary last night. Nobody seems to remember that Obama outspent her in ALL FOUR of the states in Tuesday's elections, but she still won 3 of them. So now the tide is turning, and Obama is getting anxious. I am also pleased to see the greater media and public scrutiny of Obama in the last few days–particularly with regards to his shady deals with Tony Rezko. Let us remember, folks, that most of Obama's supporters had NEVER EVEN HEARD of him four months ago–he needs to be investigated and vetted, so we know everything we need to know about him. I suspect Obama has more skeletons in the closet that we will learn about in the coming weeks.

    Hillary supporters earn under $100,000 a year, have little college education, are overwhelmingly poor and scared. They can't afford to have "dreams", because in their world, dreams don't pay the bills. The Obama supporter, on the other hand is educated and makes upward of $100,000, or is a student, and supported by his parents. That's why this faith-based campaign for Obama will fail.

    All those people who think Obama does not take money from corporate lobbyist and special interest need to WAKE UP! Of course he is, there is evidence everywhere, just try looking. He says he doesn't so you believe him? Give me a break, Obama is just as dirty as the next person. The difference is she has a long history of doing the right thing for Americans.

    What are you hiding in your tax returns Billary? Did you forget to mention you took money from Rezko in the past? How about the illegal campaign contributions from Peter Paul? Why can't your husband keep his pants on, even in the oval office?

    Scoreboard Obama

    AnyoneButHillary: You so live in the past. Most would probably feel the same about your face but the people deal with it.

    First of all, she WILL be president so get used to it.
    Second of all, if you follow the media at all, you'll notice that they are all biased towards Obama. CNN no longer stands for Clinton News Network. CNN has been leaning towards Obama for months. Get your facts straight before you waste our time reading your stupid comments.
