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.

    How does Hillary know she raised $3 million in a day? I thought she was too busy to release her taxes. Oh yeah, it is because large sums came from lobbyists and PACs and that is easy to keep track of. How many regular citizens contributed to Hillary? I bet it isn't even close to one million.

    BTW: The reason Hillary won 2 states (Texas is still counting and it looks like Obama is going to earn more delegates there) after losing 111 in a row is because she put all her eggs in Ohio's basket and basically skipped many of the other 'unimportant' states,' sending her surrogates Bill and Chelsea instead.

    Splitting 4 states after losing 11 has not changed the momentum. CNN has done that for her by glorifying her wins, not reporting on Peter Paul, not doing their homework to point out Obama answered many questions about Rezko in the Chicago Sun-Times way back in 2005, etc.

    Both Clinton and Obama supporters have plenty of reason to be mad at the media-biased "see-saw"...however, for almost 2 straight months, Obama was adored by CNN and other networks....he could do no wrong. Now, it appears the media has some biased coverage towards Clinton, yet amazing how the Obama supporters cannot handle it at all....

    I wonder how the Clintons protected Chelsea from all their bad press, looks like she turned out pretty good. But I don't trust Hillary to protect me or mine. Vote Obama.

    I happily donated twice this month alone, and many times before then. I will continue to donate and support the best candidate, Hillary Clinton. And if You care about our country, you will too. So, you ask, where is this money coming from? Well, from little people like me, just an RN from the Jersey Shore, trying to do the Right thing. She has my FULL support. And you should all wake up and follow suit.

    Obama lost Texas and Ohio because, among other things
    1- You should not say bad thing about NAFTA in Texas and the Southwest
    2- Ohio voters did not buy his NAFTA ideas

    Obama bets NAFTA on Texas and Ohio and lost both.

    I will be sending my 7th contribution to the Hillary Clinton campaign tomorrow.

    Hillary Clinton is the only candidate that can get this country back on the right course. She has the experience and the willingness to work hard, even in the midst of adversity, to straighten things out for our country domestically and internationally.

    GO HILLARY!!! 2009

    sorry people, but that rezco case in Europe does not have Obama on it. so all of the Hillary apologists/losers need to find another dead horse to kick. also, looks like Obama is going to win TX, not Hillary. check those caucas results before declaring victory you dummy.

    Obama can only win small states and caucuses (where not everyone votes). Go Hillary!

    If CNN loves this nation, they would NEVER let the Clintons back in that White House.

    The world is watching us self-destruct, and I trust the "wisdom" of CNN to query Hillary on several issues:

    1. Past behavior is the BEST predictor of future behavior. Bill will likely offend again, and Hillary will continue to divide this nation.

    2. Is Hillary's run for a place for Chelease in the future or for this nation?

    3. How will Hillary manage Bill and this nation at the same time?

    4. If Hillary continues to fight with the Republicans, how can any solution get implemented?

    5. How can anyone reward a nation or even the "majority" of people for breaking rules? FL and Michigan BROKE the rules, period!

    Way to go Hillary! Keep up the fight!! We want you answering the phone at 3a.m. The only person calling Obama at 3a.m. is Tony Rezko needing bail money!

    Hillary is not a fighter. She's ravenously and desperately hungry for power, as evidenced by her willingness to do/say absolutely anything to gain an edge (prey on American prejudices with photos she "knew nothing about", play the fear card with doomsday commercials, hiding her tax returns). Nothing will change if we let her into the White House.

    quit with the tax return issue dead line for tax returns is april 15 she is smarter then that there won't be anything there.
    obama supporters are dying out once the truth came out on obama rezko, canada and william ayer theres more don't worry.
    remember politicians are historically a little crooked, the young voters don't know that yet they are finding out.
    what is more of a concern is 80-10 average black vote compared to the white vote split ( reverse racism possible ). could luis farrakan follows be the ones pushing so hard in the caucus states?

    This is democracy in action and it is so Awesome! This thing has take n so many twists and turns and it is not nearly over. I hope that Hillary wins, because I feel that she is the better qualified, and I hope that Obama finds his place in history in due time. Go Hillary!!
