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.

    That's nothing compared to what Obama raises with just donations. Lets not forget that she takes from lobbyists too.

    Also, lets post more ridiculous photos of Hillary on CNN; seriously does she always look that insane?

    Go ahead GOOD JOB HILLARY, CHRIS, and DC! At this stage of the race, Please contribute more. Once Hillary loses the nomination, this money can be used by the DNC to campaign for Obama and other Democrats running for offices nationally. The more you contribute the more you help the Democratic Party, especially Obama.

    Raul Diaz- what a lie. I myself have donated money to her campaign as have many other hard working regular American people. Maybe you should stop for a second, listen to some of that CHANGE rhetoric Obama talks about, and actually think before you post.

    Why wouldn't the Obama campaign release the February figures? Why raise more questions for folks rather than answers?

    Does a Clinton ever have an original thought? "Yes We Will?" She is trying to be a female Obama.

    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 RP.... have you seen the article.... Obama, not Clinton, Faces Tough Math? Obama can't, absolutely win. There is no way he will ever get to 2024.

    When Clinton releases the tax returns, do you think Obama will hold a press conference and answer questions about Ayers, Auchi and the other arabs that have donated to his campaigns? How about the FARC letter? Do you think he'll answere to that one?

    I also noticed that many of the pictures of the 2 candidates lately has Obama posing normally, and Hillary shown as comically as possible! I'm pretty sure CNN can afford a professional photographer can't they??

    Dr. Ron Paul raised $6 million in one day…

    And he never got more than single-digit percentages of the vote. The people behind Ron Paul are very loyal – unfortunately for Ron Paul, there aren't many of them...
