Obama cashes in on news of Clinton's loan
by UPI

CHICAGO - U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama's fundraising reportedly soared, prompted by news that Hillary Clinton loaned her campaign $5 million.

The report about Clinton's loan spurred online contributions to Obama's campaign to between $6 million to $7 million since Super Tuesday, The Times of London reported Thursday.

Obama's campaign manager David Plouffe sent an e-mail to supporters, asking them to match the Clinton campaign's cash shot.

"The Clinton infusion of $5 million -- and there are reports it could end up being as much as $20 million -- will give them huge resources for the next set of primaries and caucuses," Plouffe wrote. "Thanks to you, we have raised more than $3 million since the polls closed on Feb. 5. But we have no choice -- we must match their $5 million right now."

The counter on BarackObama.com ticked past $6.5 million in new donations since Tuesday, the British newspaper reported.
