President Donald Trump, left, speaks at a news conference on Aug. 11, 2020, in Washington and Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden speaks in Wilmington, Del. on Aug. 13, 2020.

One of Joe Biden's latest presidential campaign events in Minnesota was a Friday afternoon Zoom call with an invisible audience of unspecified size.

Holding forth was U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, framed by bookshelves, talking up the former vice president in the latest of a series of "virtual roundtables" that have become a staple of the Biden campaign in Minnesota. It served as a prelude to the Democratic National Convention that gets underway on Monday, which will be almost entirely in cyberspace.

"What I love about Joe Biden is he gives people a plan, and passion, and a heart," Klobuchar said. "He gives you something to vote for, not just against."
