The crowd at a New Hampshire political event burst into laughter over a young girl’s response to Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley.

Video posted on X shows Haley compliment the child, whose response elicited an explosion of laughter among audience members.

“I love your hat,” Haley told the young girl, who was shown wearing her campaign’s merchandise.

“Thank you,” she said. “One of your guys gave it to me for free.”

The young supporter also asked Haley what her first acts as president would be. Haley told her it was a “great question” and emphasized that “strong girls make strong women.”

“I think she’ll do great with Israel and Ukraine and the border,” the girl told a local news station after the exchange.

Haley is making headway in New Hampshire, where she surpassed Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, according to a Washington Post/Monmouth University poll released on Friday, USA Today reported. However, former President Donald Trump remains at 46%, beating Haley, who stands in second place at 18%.

Wall Street financiers have turned to Haley as the candidate who could defeat Trump, the Wall Street Journal reported. National polls rank Haley behind DeSantis as “desperate” financiers hope she will surpass the former president and secure the GOP nomination.

Both Haley and DeSantis brought in over $1 million in the first 24 hours following the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) third GOP Primary debate earlier this month. Haley’s fundraising marked her campaign’s best single day of small-dollar donations.
