Clinton, who finally stopped that streak with three wins Tuesday night, raised $35 million in February, a record for her campaign.

The New York senator's campaign announced Thursday that Clinton has raised $6 million online since the beginning of March, with $4 million coming in since Tuesday night's victories.

Obama’s previous best was the $36 million that he raised in January.
