Clinton Reports Raising $26 Million This Year

Washington (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton has shattered previous records by collecting $26 million for her presidential campaign during the first three months of the year.

Aides say the New York Democrat has transferred an additional $10 million from her Senate fundraising account to her presidential campaign.

The total of $36 million includes more than $4 million raised through the internet.

Her campaign didn't say how much was spent. It also didn't specify how much of the $36 million is available only for the primary election and how much could be used just in the general election, if she becomes the party's nominee.

Saturday was the fund-raising deadline for the January-through-March period. Financial reports are due April 15th.
