Clinton team claims campaign fundraising record

Hillary Clinton's campaign said that as of 11:30 p.m. ET Tuesday night, they had raised nearly $2.5 million since the state was called for the New York senator – what they called their "best night ever" - with 80 percent of that money coming from new donors.

Her campaign Web site is using her victory in a fundraising appeal that calls for $5 donations.

    For Obama to not be ready on day 1 He sure has Hillary copying fund raising strategies from the public. His campaign management proves hes more than ready. Bill had littlle more experience than Obama for his day 1 as President. Obama will surround himself with the right people for all americans sake. No lobbist money here. You catch on Hillary but a little late. We the people trust Obama due to honesty from day 1 and Unity from day 1. Hillary is good but she's no Obama. Stay positive and on the issues please. Thanks

    I don't have a job because i am a full time student with severe learning disabilities, but tonight I knew that Hillary pulled off the win with half as much as Obama and frankly to me this says she can do twice as much with the same financial backing. We have to push harder now than ever because if we lose many democrats I know are planning to defect to McCain and I have to consider that avenue myself. Another republican would give us the chance as the white house again in 4 years, while a democratic failure would shut us out again for who knows how long. This is why experience is so important. If Obama gets elected and screws up minorities and democrats will be SOL. Things will be much worse for the nation and the party. Hillary HAS to win and I’ll put my meager funds into the pot for her.

    I highly doubt this is true, and if so, Im sorry to all you folks who donated, you guys should be filling up your tanks at 3.80 a gallon, The clintons have 109 MILLION DOLLARS sitting in the piggy bank. And she only cut into his lead by a WHOPPING 10 delegates. Great Job PA letting all the negative spin & a negitave campaign continue on even if she was donated 2.5 million she is still in debt by over 7.5 million. mean while you have good OLD johnny McShame sitting pretty going on the "FORGOTTEN STATE TOUR" through "URBAN AMERICA" if that isnt a slap in the face to people i dont know what is.

    Oh well I guess our nation is content on being in debt to other countries, is content with our housing crisis, content with our lack of jobs, content with fuel prices, content with same old "Washington DC" with nothing but lies and distorted info like "we arent in a recession" -Bush, content with having a adminstration who looks out for special interests & when they take office it will be politics as usual, content with a nation that we are seeing our brothers, our sisters, our kids, our friends, our family continue to get shipped off to Iraq & ARE BEING KILLED! in a war that no one even knows why we are there but everyone knows why we are there (OIL), content with an education system that is at best a C- where kids dont even have books. OUR NATION WILL NEVER CHANGE UNLESS EVERYONE LOOKS IN THE MIRROR AND HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE.

    i was one of the new donors too. i scrimped in another area and sent $15. obama isn't the only one inspiring us "little people."

    hillary has the experience, the intellect, the solutions, the determination, the vision, and the strength this country needs to begin to recover from the last 7+ years!!
