Bennet's short video was a reference to Clinton's 2015 Snapchat from the city of Cedar Rapids, where Clinton was at the time drumming up support for her bid for the Democratic nomination.

"I'm just chilling in Cedar Rapids, listening to Ave Maria," he says in the short video posted to Twitter as the song blares over a loudspeaker in the background.

The short video, Clinton's first-ever venture into Snapchat, quickly became a meme that spread on the now-defunct app Vine.

Bennet, who announced his candidacy for president in May, has struggled to break out of the low single-digits in most polling and has not appeared at a debate since July.
