HANOVER, N.H. — Jeb Bush has now asked an audience to applaud for him.

Bush delivered a speech in Hanover, N.H., in which he said the next president “needs to be a lot quieter, but send a signal that we’re prepared to act in the national security interest of this country — to get back in the business of creating a more peaceful world.”

As he paused, one woman behind him appeared to start clapping. To everyone else, he urged: “Please clap.”

The crowd obliged.

The former Florida governor was once considered the presumptive front runner in the 2016 race for the Republican presidential nomination. On Monday, he came in sixth with 2.8 percent of the vote in Iowa’s leadoff caucuses.
