Hillary Clinton raised a record $45 million dollars in donations from supporters during the first quarter of her campaign, according to early numbers released by her staff.
Although all numbers are not finalized yet, the mid-April to June 30 haul appears to be a record for a candidate in their first quarter, with the previous record having been held by President Obama, raising $41.9 million in the first quarter of his re-election campaign.
