Hillary Clinton ended her Pennsylvania victory speech with a plea for donations in order to compete with Barack Obama’s campaign war chest. Her supporters have responded to the tune of as much as $10 million (in one day), according to the Clinton campaign.

WASHINGTON—Turns out Hillary Rodham Clinton’s victory Tuesday came with a cash prize.
In the hours after winning Pennsylvania’s Democratic presidential primary, Clinton’s campaign said she raised $3.5 million.
By midday Wednesday, the campaign estimated the total haul at $10 million raised online in the 24 hours since Pennsylvania’s polls closed, and claimed it was her best fundraising day ever.
