Clinton raises $20 million in March

(CNN) - Six hours after senior advisers to Hillary Clinton told reporters her March fundraising total would not be released until later this month, campaign sources tell CNN her campaign raised $20 million during that time period - about half of what rival Barack Obama took in for the month.

    Could someone tell senator Clinton that she did not when Texas, illegal votes don't count.

    Obama won with more delegates. Obama 99 to Clinton 94 do the math.

    Clinton only wastes people's donation for her own selfserving desire. I wish the media would show side by side the opposite views or statements by Clinton, such as her recall of Bosnia's snipers fire and the actual scene; her telling people Obama wants to end the race with him saying she can go as long as she likes; her 3 am phone call and the misspoke due to sleep-deprivation; her saying MI&FL votes won't count (or her signed agreement of such) and her spin that she cares for their voters' right; So many that will make a hilarious cartoon series.

    From a two week estimate to six hours. We can't trust the Clinton camp for the simplest of information involving her own campaign; how can she be trusted in our highest office?

    I guess her real experience is how to lose an election and bankrupt a campaign, which had all the necessary requirements to have an easy victory (name recognition, "fat cat" supporters, and the most expensive campaign advisors). She should stay in the race because this is so amusing and pathetic.

    OOPS! Well, that explains the recycled, half-baked 3 a.m. economic ad.

    Another thing, Hillary, I'd like to "ask you", (Cue in other new shabby ad): Where is all this experience you've been touting that more recently has been shot down not only by sniper fire but your own delusional conflation of lies and exaggerations.

  8. p.g.

    I think it is sad we are bragging about how much money each campaign has made. The U.S. has hit hard economic times. It seems a bit wrong to me.

    This again shows from both campaigns millions of dollars are being donated and gas prices are sky rocketing and jobs are being lost. Let's end this cry for funds if you know numerically that you can't win.

    Well, you gotta give Hillary an "A" for effort. She's still in the race and still trying.

    Sadly, it will all be for nothing for her. McCain will be the next president. The writing is on the wall. He shot up to the top last February and will stay there.

  14. Stacy Clarks,


    to all the clinton supporters that will surely minimize this in some way...why should I be vote to let Clinton run this country when she cannot run her campaign and manager her monye

    People, you do realize that the country is in DEFICIT, and the next president will start at a NEGATIVE amount....now, Clinton started with a surplus, but now OWES people money

    $20 Million minus $8.7 Million leaves $11.3 Million.

    Pay your bills, Hill.

    Oh well half as much money and half as many states, too bad for her.
    The really strange thing is that there must be no communication over there at team Clinton.
    Is this the woman we want running our all ready bankrupt economy. I think not.
    Also she did not pay her employees insurance bills for two months and she say she knows how to get us all universally covered, ha!
    She is a liar.

    I think Hillary is lying about the 20 Million dollar raise for March, Hillary is not to be trusted

    Can she go ahead and pay the people in New Hampshire, Ohio and all those other states where her campaign owes money. Or maybe yet Obama can lend her campaign some money and more.

    You are all missing the point. Why focus on the negative? The amount of interest and new voter registrations during this primary should be front news!!!. Democrats let's get together. Stop all the bickering!!!

    Track the money and then you can make comments about where the candidats receive their financing. I suggest people take a look at opensecrets.org.

    sophia in nyc, are you that stupid? Really? You must be a young college student trying to figure things out still. The 3m goal was for the last two days of the month – that was raised in two days – I am a Hillary supporter and I follow her fundraising.
    You are clearly naive. Obama will not win the GE but I really don't care. I'd rather have McCain than that polished salesman.
