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.

    I'll bet the first 3 million went to pay back the loans from Bill's Middle East speech fund..., at 10% interest rate of course..

    The people who post such negativity on your sight is unbeleivable. I am a die hard once and for all Clinton supporter. I am not going to vote for Obama in the General Election only for Clinton–should she be nominated. I am a white professional from California who might be considerred an elitist. Surprise Surprise But I do not go and publicly say negative things about Senator Obama. Get a life and lighten up folks–and respect each of the candidates and your fellow voters..

    Didn't we hear different figures for March, too, only to find out she was in deep doo-doo debt and hadn't payed her bills? What a shame to have an even bigger liar spinning the dollar amount. I'm ashamed to see a former chairman of the DNC be such a rogue along with the lie as they breathe as they spin Clinton circus mobile.

    To the Superdelagates, please put this lady out of her misery and send her home.

    I'll start the drum beat on this:

    In order for Clinton to stat in this race she needs to win NC by ten points. Anything less and she needs to quit. NC is one of those "big" states that Clinton keeps referring too.

    All MAXED OUT donors hoping to get Bill back in the white house. When will she realize that the majority of her supporters are voting for her husband, and not for her?

    All that means is the Clinton Campaign can pay back the debt they incurred BEFORE Pennsylvania. The Campaign is broke, and this is just a smoke screen...kinda like their entire campaign at this point.

    Better question is how much money do we have to raise to get rid of her

    Clinton is a LIAR and will take the low road any chance she gets... case in point the negative 911 / Bin Laden add she ran.

    I will never wates my money to for Hailly. she will not win. she will use the money to pay her bills. Is because Obama is not negative if he is negative he will expose Hillary very well. she is a big liar.
    Just drop out of the race.

    I don't think that you can call anyone who is willing to stand up for the post of President of the United States Pathetic, as noted by Mary, and nor do I think you can rule her out also. People should hold back such insults to any candidate and get on with the main issues that is resulting in a country to be more now in the red from the past 8 yrs of Bush ADminsistration then all the prior presidents and their administration in total.

    Also, if people are going to site for facts that items are fake/false Lies, could you please note where your factual information is coming from, are you aware of all conversations that either Hillary, Barrack or John have had with members of congress, senate or foreign heads or their administration...Again enough of the slanging match and lets unite under the big issues that confront this country.....

    It is not a bluff. Good job Hilary. At least we know the contributions are not from some terrorist cell masquerading as small organizations.

    Keep up the fight!

    I'm so tired of listening to Obama supporters criticize Hillary. I'm not going to bother posting all the goods on Obama. Anyone that can listen to him lie about his relationship with his minister and believe him is a fool. Oh yes...sorry...he has now "disowned" him so we shouldn't talk about that.

    I support Hillary but if she doesn't get the nomination I will support Obama regardless. This is because I feel so strongly that we need a democrat in the whitehouse. That is much more important that any personal issues I have with the man.

    Get a grip people. Get over it!!!!!!

    I don't believe for a minute that she raised that much money and any money she does raise, is already owed to paid debts. If people were really giving she would not have to constantly give her email address. They can spin and lie all they want, bottom line is Barack is in the lead in every way that counts in the democratic party.

    I'm an Obama supporter- and we Obama supports need to give this Clinton bashing a rest. She's running a competitive campaign, and the longer she stays in this, the more Democrats register to vote in these exciting contests. I personally don't like her, I think she runs a campaign more similar to George Bush's than Barack's, but at the same time people must obviously see something in her if they are going to be placing votes for her in a contest where she's on the edge of being completely vanquished. Let's just hope that if she does get elected, she can actually deliver on some of her reform ideas better than she has on health care over the past 15 years.

    Give us a break. The OBAMA people probably fed you this. Please present the experience that your candidate has vs hers.

    Finally the people are coming to realize that Hillary is the only real choice if there is to be any chance of beating McCain.

    Stop calling older voters racist. Just because they are more informed then Obama cult members doesn't mean they are racist. It means they are smart. Your candidate has the most idiotic tax policy I have ever seen. He's an easy target for the Republicans. He can't get the votes of blue collar workers. Keep bashing those who don't vote blindly for a candidate who has done nothing to bring together the parties, but all you'll do is drive their votes to McCain if Hillary doesn't win.

    The huge Democratic Staes are flooding her with cash. I just love her attitude. She will be the very best candidate for our Party.

    What a wimp,BO is afraid to debate her. Just too funny.He is really afraid he cannot trust himself to answer simple questions. Why should anybody trust him. He comes with good references from South corrupt Chicago, Boo Boo Obomba.He needs to bow out now. He needs to go back to his very important job of signing up voters (community organizer) lol.

    For the Republicans that keep posting boring lies you are arfaid of her too. Certainly proves you have not read President Clinton or Hillary Rodham Clinton's books. They are really thick and pretty in depth for the advanced readers.

    Fact of the matter is when an election is this close it will be impossible for either candidate to reach 2,025 delegates so what they end up going by is superdelegates. Who ever has the most superdelegates will win.

    Clinton is a pathetic representative for women! She is not running on her own. Without Bill Clinton campaigning 24/7 for her she would have been out of the race. Unless people want him selling us down the tube to the people and countries that have made him a multi-millionaire, they need to keep their money and possibly the few jobs they have now.

    The fundraising is fantastic for Hillary and America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The amount will triple and more by the end of the month because America wants her to stay the course. We need a person with substance and not hot air and talk.

    The senior voters understand because they have see it all over the years. Inexperienced and young voters will learn as the mature in the political game that talk is cheap but actions go a lot farther.
