Clinton joins Obama in raising millions online since Super Tuesday

We’d reported last night that Obama has raised over $7.3 million online since Super Tuesday. I just got word that Hillary also launched a post- Super Tuesday online fundraiser and has raised $4 million, including adding 35,000 new donors (which is important because new donors can potentially be asked to give again, and they’re potentially new votes, new volunteers, etc.). Obama raised 80% more than Hillary during the same time period, but to some degree that’s to be expected – his fundraising has been out of control for a while, and in January he raised twice as much as her. Still, it’s good news for Hillary that she can still bring in significant bucks at a time that she very much needs them, now that the race is clearly going on for quite a while longer. I doubt either campaign budgeted for a race this long.
