ABC News’ Teddy Davis Reports: Will the Clintons put their own money into Sen. Hillary Clinton’s, (D-N.Y.), White House bid?

Asked during a Wednesday conference call with reporters if Clinton was self-funding, Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said, "I’m not aware that they had but I have not had a chance to discuss it."   

A Democratic strategist allied with – but not working for — Clinton told ABC News Tuesday that the Clinton campaign has discussed investing as much as $20 million into the race.

Asked if the Clintons are in a position to invest $20 million and whether a decision has been made, Wolfson told ABC News, "Will let you know when I have something."

With Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., outraising Clinton in January and with this race poised to go into March or April, such an infusion might be necessary.

But it could also, in the words of another Democratic strategist, "open up the question of WJC funding sources."
