Record Millions for Clinton Campaign

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton raised $26 million for her presidential campaign and transferred an additional $10 million from her Senate war chest to post $36 million in the first quarter of the 2008 fundraising season, more than three times as much as the previous record for this stage of a Democratic primary, according to articles by the New York Times and CNN.

According to the CNN article, this first quarter in fundraising is considered a benchmark in how the candidate will do later on.

The New York Times article goes on to detail that the Clinton camp is trying to stay away from public donations in favor of private donations, which have no limit.
