Clinton Collects $10 Million In Fundraising Efforts

April 24, 2008

Hillary Clinton is raking in the cash to keep on fighting. Eighty-thousand new donors answered her fundraising plea.. and the campaign collected $10 million in the 24 hours after her Pennsylvania win.

The New York Senator faces two more critical contests in less than two
weeks against an opponent with more than $42 million in his war chest.

"I am hoping we can have a debate in North Carolina, the voters of North Carolina deserve a debate," said Clinton.

Barack Obama is the favorite in North Carolina. The state has seen a huge spike in the number of registered black voters. And more than $80,000 people have already cast ballots in early voting.

Once again, this longer than expected primary battle is giving a voice to voters in states that usually don't get a say in the Democratic candidate who will fight for the White House.

The GOP presidential pick spent the day campaigning in New Orleans, but
found himself pulled into North Carolina politics.

"We communicated with them in the strongest possible words not to run that ad," said McCain.

For the second day he condemned a commercial the state Republican party
produced. It features controversial comments from Obama's former pastor.

The ad calls Obama "too extreme" for North Carolina. It's a message that could help Clinton, and she won't have to spend a dime.
