As the NY Times reports today, Hillary Clinton is fighting on despite last night’s results which have deflated some of her momentum.
Highlighting the difficulties Mrs. Clinton has had in financing her high-spending battle against Senator Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination, officials from her campaign disclosed on Wednesday that she had lent her campaign more than $6 million over the last month. She did so, they said, in three installments: $5 million on April 11, $1 million on May 1, and $425,000 on May 5.
Mrs. Clinton is willing to put more money into her campaign going forward, said Terry McAuliffe, her campaign’s chairman. “Senator Clinton has anted up and is fighting on,” he said.
Good for Hillary. There are plenty of reasons for her to stay in and plenty of supporters who agree that she should. Here’s Hillary’s latest email:
Today, in every way that I know how, I am expressing my personal determination to keep forging forward in this campaign.
After our come-from-behind victory in Indiana, there are just 28 days of voting left. But we’ve never campaigned with the stakes as high or the time as short as they will be over the next four weeks.
And with you by my side, I’m going to keep fighting for what I believe in until every voter has had his or her say.
From the very beginning, you and I have counted on one another, working through every challenge and seizing every opportunity. That’s not just the way our campaign works. That’s the way America works.
As we enter the final four weeks of this contest, let’s keep working our hearts out.
In six days, we have the chance to show our strength in West Virginia. If you’ll stand with me, it’s an opportunity I intend to make the most of.
There’s no question about it — we’ve got to make every one of these next 28 days count — starting with today.
As we’ve told each other time and time again. There will be good days and not so good days in the course of this campaign. But there will never be a day that we can’t count on one another.
As we enter the final 28 days of voting, I know you’ll give it everything you’ve got. And you know I will do the same.
Thanks for being such a wonderful friend and ally,
Hillary Rodham Clinton
