The campaign of Republican presidential contender Nikki Haley touted an $11 million fundraising haul in the six weeks since she launched her bid on Feb. 15.

As a result of the fundraising windfall, drawn from tens of thousands of donations across all 50 states, Haley is ending the first quarter with $7.8 million cash on hand, according to her campaign.

“In just six weeks, Nikki Haley’s massive fundraising and active retail campaigning in early voting states makes her a force to be reckoned with,” Haley’s campaign manager Betsy Ankney said in a statement.

“Voters and donors are clearly responding to Nikki’s conservative message and her call for a new generation of leadership to make America strong and proud. As Nikki said in her announcement speech in Charleston on Feb. 15, ‘I’ve been underestimated before. That’s always fun,'” Ankney added.

For comparison, former President Donald Trump’s campaign and a joint fundraising committee raked in $9.5 million during the first six weeks of his campaign debut, NBC reported. In a recent email, Trump claimed that his campaign had received $10 million since last Thursday amid news of his indictment by a New York grand jury.

Her campaign noted that 67,000 donations were from people who contributed $200 or less. Allies of her campaign argue that her financial prowess demonstrates that she is the clear alternative to Trump in the 2024 GOP primary.

Haley began the week with a trip to the southern border, where she unveiled plans to tackle the immigration and border security crisis. She has also stumped at 19 grassroots events across New Hampshire and Iowa, per her campaign.

Later this week, Haley is set to head back to South Carolina to hold a rally and has additional events planned in Iowa over the coming days as well.

Haley is currently running in fourth place in a hypothetical 2024 matchup of GOP hopefuls, according to the RealClearPolitics polling aggregate.
