Big Win in Ohio and Texas Sends Money Pouring In

(CBS)

From CBS News' Fernando Suarez:

WASHINGTON -- After two big wins in Texas and Ohio, Hillary Clinton is getting a much needed financial bump from supporters – over $3 million in 24 hours, according to a campaign source. The response was so great that the campaign is "upping the goal to $6 million in 48 hours," the source said.

Clinton raised $35 million last month, but the record fundraising figure was quickly overshadowed by Barack Obama's $50 million raised in the same month. The Clinton campaign found growing support in smaller donations online from some 200,000 new donors, a strategy Obama's campaign has benefited from. A large portion of donations to his campaign comes from online donors.

In January, Clinton loaned her campaign $5 million of her own money to help compete in February 5th states. She called the loan a "good investment."
