Hillary Clinton Raises $6 Million in 72 Hours

The Hillary Clinton Camp has raised $6 million in 72 hours for her presidential campaign to exceed the target of $3 million set after her superlative Super Tuesday victories in New York, New Jersey, California, Massachusetts and other states. She beat Barack Obama to the biggest prize of California and that provoked him to raise over $7 million to boost his presidential campaign in the quest for the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party. Barack Obama won more states, but Hillary Clinton won more votes and more delegates. She has won more votes than Barack Obama since she bounced back after losing the Iowa Caucuses to him by 8%. She defeated him in the New Hampshire Primary and Nevada Caucuses and she was the first choice of most voters in the No-Contest Democratic Primaries in Michigan and Florida. Barack Obama defeated her in the South Carolina Primary before the Super Tuesday Primaries and Caucuses in 22 states. The contest for the Democratic presidential nomination continues with more primaries and caucuses in about 10 states.

Here is the latest mail sent to all HillRaisers and other supporters of Hillary Clinton for President. Read and kindly join us.

Dear Orikinla,

Now THAT is what I call two good days.

Not only did we celebrate huge victories for Hillary all over the country on Super Tuesday, but you matched our success with a breathtaking show of support.

You exceeded our $3 million goal in less than 24 hours. In fact, we've already hit FOUR MILLION DOLLARS! Incredible! And so far, more than 35,000 people -- 35,000! -- have made online contributions.

Your response has been so amazing that we are doubling our goal: $6 million in 72 hours.

I'm simply awed to see everyone stepping up for Hillary. And boy did you pick a good time to do it! We poured our heart, our soul, and -- you better believe -- tens of millions of dollars into February 5. Now it's time to build our resources back up for what we know will be a long and hard-fought contest.

If you've been considering whether or not to give, Hillary needs you right now. The next contests for the nomination are just days away.

Contribute now to help us reach $6 million by midnight Friday.

We have the best candidate. We have the best strategy. All we need to win are the resources to put our plan into place. And we are depending on you.

You accomplished something incredible in the last 24 hours -- $4 million contributed and 35,000 online donations. We know you can sustain our campaign when we need you the most.

Let's reach a new milestone for Hillary -- help us raise $6 million by midnight Friday.

Contribute today to help us reach our new goal.

I'm so proud to work for someone with Hillary's strength and character. Watching her on stage Tuesday night made me more proud than ever to be a part of this historic campaign.

I know you feel the same way, and I speak for her when I tell you we are so grateful to have you on our side.
