The Wall Street Journal leads its world-wide newsbox with, and the WP fronts, Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign announcing that it raised $35 million in February. Sen. Barack Obama’s camp hasn’t released official figures, but aides said their total was “considerably more.” There are estimates that he raised about $50 million, which, combined with Clinton’s total, would surpass the record that was set by President Bush and Sen. John Kerry in March 2004. It seems that lending her campaign $5 million was a good strategy for Clinton because online donations, which accounted for $30 million of the total, soared after the news got out.
