The Clinton campaign is reporting a very successful fundraising day.

The Clinton campaign is reporting a very successful fundraising day.

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton's campaign says it is on track to raise $10 million online in the 24 hours since the Pennsylvania primary results were announced.

"Senator Clinton's game-changing victory last night has turned the tide and resulted in an historic outpouring of grassroots support," Clinton Campaign Chairman Terry McAuliffe said in a statement. "Just like Hillary, our supporters have met every challenge and come through each time. Thanks to them, we will have the resources needed to compete and win as we move ahead to the next contests."

The campaign also said over 60,000 donors - 50,000 of them new - have given money to Clinton from Tuesday night through noon Wednesday.

    Anyone worried about how Hillary has mismanaged her campaign need not worry about how she does as president. If you are old enough to have held down a job in the better share of the 90's you know full well how Mr. Clinton HELPED reduce deficits and fix our economy. Don't think Mrs, Clinton will be any different.

    I know Bill is not running by the way but I also know that she is not far removed from the same policies that she learned work in our economy.

    Hillary also knows how to deal with the spin machine that is the media. You all try to put her away and yet she stays around. She's sending the message late that she is more electable.

    Ps. Cafferty and CNN, stop drinking the Obama Koolaid!

    She keeps on running out of Money and this is the person you guys want to run our economy? It makes sense. Good for her, maybe now we will not have to hear about how she was out spent.

    She will be shocked by how much Obama has raised since last night. THe idea was to make her broke in PA, it seems to have worked. Now Obama will outspend her in Indiana, North Carolina and Oregon. She needs like 60 Million in two weeks.

    Responding to the poster that alluded to Obama as a whiner.

    Clinton is the whiner. EVERY DAY!

    Why can she get away with it and paint it all over Senator Obama?

    Any Clinton supporter is wasting their time and money. She is only in it for herself. Has been for years. She cares not one wit about America as a whole. In fact, she is happy to start WW III and obliterate humanity from the planet.

    Get a clue, folks.

    Perri, great comment. The whole thing is a shame, the Clinton fraud has gone on too long. The crazy thing is people look the other way and keep supporting her!!!!!!!

    She took money for presidential pardons in two different schemes with her two brothers...you never hear about it on the news but it says a lot about the person.

    Hillary supporters...what are you thinking let alone Donating money for? She is lucky not to be in jail....and people who don't know better follow her like sheep. You cannot honestly disregard everything she has done...

    I am pulling for Hillary for a selfish reason. I believe she will surround herself with competent people who will get the economy and my
    401 K back to the growth we all saw during

  11. At this point.....

    Now they can pay off their debtors. Hillary supporters should be so proud to have helped her pay off her debts.
    People are only voting for her because of her husband's track record because her years in Senate are so similar to Obama.

    I am amazed that Hillary Clinton has the gust to shout about her victory and she turns around to call herself the underdog having entered the race as the 'Princess'. What a drama, it reminds me of the story of the dubious emperor in the Russel Crowe's movie The Gladiator. Mark my words, the only thing Hillary will gain out of all of this is shame even if she wins the november elections.

    I'm not buying this spin from the Clinton campaign. No way can I get excited about that family. I made a donation last night after the election was finalized and it was not to Clinton.

    Obama 08... No more Clinton's, no more Bush's in the Whitehouse.

    the more people know Obama, the less Obama gets support.
    These problems with Obama make him can not win the general election.

    People need to remember that even MCCain does not want to use "dirty tatics." I think I have heard him make several statements regarding this issue, given what he experienced in the hands of George Bush.

    But all that Hillary wants us to believe is that there is a need to "fight" rather than negotiate; that there is a need to tel lies, rather than be honest; that there is a need to throw mud, rather than compromise. Well, this is Washington, as we know it- fight, blame the other party, and do not carry out any solution for this nation. Keep fighting, but when you go out there, be prepared to pay $4 at the pump; expect your job to close down, and expect to pay more for food and insurance. Just keep fighting, see if these fights resolve any issue for this nation!!!!

    Can someone please explain to me exactly why Florida and Michigan delegates aren't being included? Why did they go early? Who made them do it? Why?

    Surely those primaries should be held again? How can a system be fair if the voters of two states are not counted? It isn't democracy, that is for sure.

    Now, at such a late stage, if Obama won Florida surely Hillary would have to quit. It would be an emphatic victory and the Democrats could get on with the real business of trying to defeat McCain. If Hillary won then it would all come down to the Superdelegates. In any event we'd be a whole lot closer to a getting a fair result rather than the sham that we currently have.

    Please explain how such a large state will not have their voters will included? This isn't a game, this is democracy. Many people have died defending this right.

    What a complete waste of money on the part of all candidate! This is obsurd. If we added up all the money spend on these BS campaigns we could put a dent in debt we have with China. Or buy everyone a free tank of gas!!!! 🙂

  22. Ex-Hillary supporter

    I read that the Clinton circus is $10million in debt..
    So, here we have a candidate who mismanages her campaign, who lies to voters, who has some serious conflict of interest issues that have not been addressed......The list of negatives is endless.
    Who in their right mind would vote for this individual.

    So, now she is asking the little people to pay off her debts.
    More fool them and heaven help the Democratic party if she succeeds in stealing the nomination.

    Time and again, she has produced 100% of the result with 25% of the money. It's time she receives the backing she deserves – she's a President we can believe in.

    Obama is now complaining about Hillary pointing out that he can't stand the heat while saying she complains more. That's pretty mature.
