Appearing on the “Special Report” panel Monday, National Journal columnist Ron Fournier said Hillary Clinton’s campaign is “really worried about” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio following his 2016 announcement in Miami Monday evening.

Fournier also compared Rubio to Bill Clinton, saying his talk about “building the bridge to the 21st century” was a lot like Clinton’s message in 1996. He also told guest host Shannon Bream that Rubio’s address was “a not too subtle hit at Jeb Bush.”

FOURNIER: The Clinton campaign is really worried about him. They really are. Hillary gave him an advantage, but so did Obama by these relations with Cuba. So every time he said yesterday, yesterday, yesterday, past, past, past, he may as well have said ‘Clinton, Clinton Clinton, Bush, Bush, Bush.’ This was a not too subtle hit at Jeb Bush as well. I do agree it was very Clintonesque. I think he’s trying to talk about building the bridge to the 21st century that Clinton promised to do in ’96 and never quite got done. Very aspirational, very forward thinking. Very new generation. Good speech.
