WATCH: CNN's Dana Bash Corners Marco Rubio Over Project 2025

During a Sunday interview, CNN's Dana Bash pressed Senator Marco Rubio about the Heritage Foundation's controversial 2025 Project. 

Rubio, once a fierce opponent against Trump during the 2016 Republican Primary, has now emerged as one of his 2024 Vice Presidential candidates. He has recently been acting as a surrogate for the Trump campaign and did so on CNN this weekend. 

Bash pressed the candidate on the Heritage Foundations' controversial plan asking about the group's President Kevin Roberts saying that the revolution will only be bloodless if Democrats make it that way. 

"Well, he's not running for president is he," Rubio responded. "I mean our candidate is Donald Trump. I didn't hear Donald Trump say that. Donald Trump's running on common sense, on restoring common sense versus the lunacy of the last four years and the far left and the shadow government that now is running our country. "

The Florida Senator continued

"Think tanks do think tank stuff, they come up with ideas, they say things. Look, I like Heritage Foundation. I agree with some of the things they stand for, but there's a bunch of scholars and people to turn around and work on different projects, but our candidate for president is Donald Trump and Donald Trump is running on restoring common sense, working-class values and making decisions on the basis of that, not an ideological lunacy, which is what we've seen over the last four years."
