The AP said Obama looked "taken aback" at the girl’s words, but told nearby children that the girl was "doing something for her dad."

Obama then invited the girl to the stage and hugged her, saying, "Oh my goodness."

The girl’s father, Ben Bell, worked on the Obama presidential campaign in 2012, the AP said. Bell’s mother, who asked not to be identified, said the family joked about making a job pitch to Obama, but didn’t know that her daughter would actually do so.

Bell’s gesture touched many online.
