Democrats are waving the "need money now" signs as they piggyback on the momentum created by Hillary Clinton in announcing her candidacy for president, the National Journal reports of what it calls a fundraising "tap dance."

At the moment, as she is the front-runner but not yet the party's nominee, Democrats navigate along a slippery slope, the Journal said, "as they'll have to endeavor throughout the primary to ride Clinton's coattails without explicitly serving as her booster."

Messages abound from every corner, from the Democratic National Committee to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic Governors Association, which stepped up to say in an email on Sunday that it would double any contribution made, the Journal said.

Political actions committees are also riding Hillary's coattails, the Journal added. An email from the House Majority PAC on Monday urged support for Clinton, who it said "needs to know that Democrats from across the country are standing with her and are committed to electing more Democrats to have her back in Congress."

Democrats from every corner are seizing upon Hillary's political and fundraising prowess — and her long-anticipated decision to run — the Washington Examiner reported. It said the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) quickly sent out a "She's In" blast seeking more voters to add their names to the list of support.

The Examiner pointed out what many see as the inevitable — Hillary leading the pack and no other likely candidate earning a mention. The DSCC's email "didn't mention any of the other Democrats eyeing the presidency, including former Sen. Jim Webb or former Gov. Martin O'Malley," it said.

While others gear up around her star power, Hillary herself has embraced small donors with a personalized message, rather than seeking mega-donors as part of her kickoff, Politico reported.

Clinton, Politico said, is "trying to make even small-dollar donors feel like they are part of the inner circle, including them in the kickoff finance team conference calls."

Added Tony Podesta, who is the brother of Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta, to Politico: "I think it's more in keeping in style with the campaign they want to run. They aren't going to have chartered jets for the finance committee if she is driving across the country. House parties will be in Iowa, not in Georgetown."
