In the competition's 97-year history, Mund is the first person to win the title from her home state.

In a question-and-answer session, Mund weighed in on the United States' recent withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, saying she thought it was a "bad decision".

The new Miss America walked over to one of the boats that says "Atlantic City" for more photos, demonstrating the pageant wave as a young, hoodie-wearing lifeguard slumped in his chair looked unimpressed.

The victor of last night's pageant was Miss North Dakota Cara Hund, and Miss Alabama Jessica Procter made the Top 7. She said she believed leaving the agreement was the wrong decision. Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table.

Mund wasn't the only contestant to be asked a political question during the pageant's interview portion.

Mund was set to take the traditional winner's morning-after dip in the Atlantic City ocean Monday morning outside Boardwalk Hall, where she won the crown. The Ivy League honors graduate, who has a business degree from Brown University, has worked in the U.S. Senate as an internee.

"There is evidence that climate change is existing", she said.

'He is our president and we need to support him, ' Mund said.

Experienced Maria certainly has some authority in this arena having been crowned Miss Massachusetts Teen in 1996 and being first runner-up at Miss Massachusetts in 2000

"I think that the white supremacist issue, it was very obvious it was a terrorist attack".

Congratulations to Cara Mund of North Dakota!

"Honestly? It was to get to Miss America and make it past the Top 10", Mund said.

Mund bested a field of 51 competitors from each state and the District of Columbia during the weeklong of events.

The first runner-up in the competition was Miss Missouri, Jennifer Davis.

Miss Texas Margana Wood, who was announced later as 4th runner-up, was asked: "Last month, a demonstration of neo-Nazi white supremacists and the KKK in Charlottesville turned violent, and a protester was killed".

But Cara Mund is already proving to be the ideal package of brains and beauty, as she breaks away from the bikini babe beauty queen stereotype. Mund took over the title from last year's victor, Miss Arkansas, Savvy Shields.
