Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota urged a town hall audience in New Hampshire to cheer after one of her answers was met with silence.

The 2020 Democratic presidential contender’s seemingly lighthearted appeal came after she responded to a question on how she planned to appeal to middle-class voters from the Midwest who picked Donald Trump in the last election.

"I guess you look at what I've done, and that is that I am someone that runs in a purple state," Klobuchar said of Minnesota. "Every single time I have run, I have won every single congressional district in my state, including Michele Bachmann's."

Her answer was greeted with silence.

“That’s when you guys are supposed to cheer, OK?” she said.

The CNN town hall was one of five in New Hampshire featuring presidential hopefuls – Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg were set to follow Klobuchar and field questions directly from students and young New Hampshire Democrats.

Klobuchar’s “clap” moment was reminiscent of former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s “Please Clap!” moment in 2016 during the GOP primary contest for the presidential campaign.
