WASHINGTON - New York Sen. Hillary Clinton shared her wealth in March, doling out $190,000 to Democrats in Iowa, New Hampshire and elsewhere, according to a campaign report filed late Thursday.
Clinton's political action committee, HILLPAC, raised $272,477 and spent $327,484 in March, according to the group's filing to the Federal Election Commission.
A potential 2008 candidate for the White House, Clinton donated $5,000 each to the Democratic organizations in New Hampshire and Iowa two states that play key early roles in presidential primaries. She gave the same amount to state parties in Michigan and Arizona.
Clinton spokeswoman Ann Lewis said the Iowa and New Hampshire donations were part of a larger effort to help Democratic candidates for governor in 2006.
The Senate Democrats' campaign committee, the House Democrats' campaign committee and the national committee each received $15,000.
Two congressmen trying to make it to the Senate also got boosts from Clinton. Rep. Bernie Sanders, who is running for the seat held by retiring Vermont lawmaker Jim Jeffords, received $10,000, as did Harold Ford Jr. of Tennessee, who is campaigning for the seat being vacated by Majority Leader Bill Frist. Newly minted Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey also got $10,000.
Many of Clinton's Senate colleagues received $5,000 apiece, including Sens. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., Bill Nelson, D-Fla., Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii.
Clinton wrote far more political checks last month than did former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, a potential Republican presidential candidate. FEC filings for his PAC, Solutions America, showed he raised no money but gave $5,000 to Rep. Peter King (news, bio, voting record), a Long Island Republican, and Mark Kennedy, a Republican congressman running for the Senate in Minnesota.

God help us all!
No she won't be.
Many people overestimate her chances and forget that the majority of americans don't want Billary back in the whitehouse.
She might have total support from Hollyweird, MSM, and lot of limousine liberals, but please name for me the last NorthEast liberal democrat that won the whitehouse.
Where is Ronnie Earle?
Name a well known GOP candidate that could overcome the previously mentioned topics and beat her, keeping in mind how close the last 2 elections have been.
She gave other peoples money. Not her own. Dems are always generous with others money.
She's a "screecher".....the only way she can be Pres. if she gets a 3rd party candidate to run, too....then, it MIGHT happen. If not, most people can't stand to listen to her for more than 5 words.
That's $190,000 more than I expected.
A real news story would be how many dollars she's sucked up from other Democrats who could have used them.
If for nothing else, THIS is why we have to support John Spencer. He can force the beast to spend her money in New York and not send it out to other rat candidates who can't raise money because their district realizes what socialists they are. http://www.joinspencer.com/site/c.euLPK3MNItG/b.982203/k.9E29/John_Spencer.htm
Getting ready for his new job as Hillary's attorney general.
LOL, good one!
