The Consequences of the Self-Loan

With reports of Hillary Clinton loaning her campaign $5 million dollars, this is a question that some Clinton donors may have to think about:
But it also requires judgement on the part of the donor. At the end of any losing campaign, when a candidate realizes he is going to lose ahead of everyone else, he may begin raising money to cover at least part of the loan. Caveat donor.

While reports are that Hillary Clinton has raised $8 million since Super Tuesday, my first question was how much of that was candidate money? My second question was, how much of it is designated to the general election, and therefore unusuable right now?
