Clinton raising $10 million since victory, campaign says
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who has trailed rival Barack Obama in fundraising, is set to bring in some $10 million (5.05 million pounds) in the 24 hours since she won Pennsylvania's primary election, her campaign said on Wednesday.
"Senator Clinton's game-changing victory last night has turned the tide and resulted in an historic outpouring of grass-roots support," campaign Chairman Terry McAuliffe said in a statement.
He said 60,000 donors had contributed by midday on Wednesday, of which 50,000 were new givers.
Clinton, a New York senator, raised $20.9 million in March compared to $42.8 million raised by Obama, a senator from Illinois.
Clinton beat Obama in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, but he leads nationally in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
