Clinton raises $22 million in April

(CNN) - Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson told CNN Tuesday that the New York senator's presidential campaign had raised $22 million in the month of April.

He added again that Hillary Clinton had the resources necessary to compete in upcoming contests, and considered the race far from over. "We don't have a nominee until we have a nominee," he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, since neither candidate has yet reached the number of delegates required to claim the Democratic nomination.

UPDATE: The Clinton campaign said last month's fundraising figures were the campaign's second best to date.

“Just like Hillary, our supporters continue to fight," Campaign Chairman Terry McAuliffe said in a statement. "The support for Hillary continues to grow with each month and we are so thankful to the army of supporters who have assured that we’ll have the resources needed to win the upcoming contests.”

    Good for her. She can pay off her own campaign debts. The last thing I want is my donations to Obama going to pay off this horrible, divisive, pure political wonk campaign debt. She ran a terrible campaign, and deserves the debt. Let Billary go shill for more corporations so he can more millions to pay off her debt!

    Go Obama – honest change that this country needs!

    Nothing could be more stupid than for a HRC supporter to say they would vote for McCain. He couldn't be more opposite than her on policy. Obama is basically the same candidate as far as that goes.

    As an Obama supporter, who hates Hillary, I would still vote for her over McCain and 4 more years of Bush's failed policy.

    CNN do you job! As much as the Clinton campaign has either mislead, distorted, and left-out many things in there campaign finance announcements. How much of the $22 million that Hillary "raised" came from her and Bill's fortune?!?! How much debt did the Clinton campaign have in April?

    Obama could have raised a little more from people like me, but too much talk of Obama paying off Hillary's debt is unappealing to me, so I will wait till Hillary is out!

    DY and others

    Looks like it's President McCain.

    Democrats can't disenfranchise a 5+ point pledged delegate victory wihouth fracturing the party, losing much of the black vote, new young vote, and

    Hillary supporters are trying to hold the party hostage with threats to vote against Obama. If they follow through with those threats, McCain wins.

    ...and it will be the fault of idiots like you.
