Rubio: Only One Savior, and It’s Not Me

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) has been getting a lot of attention – and he moved Thursday morning to tamp it down a bit.
Mr. Rubio has been in the headlines a ton in recent weeks. First came his high-profile efforts to pass an immigration overhaul, and then the news Wednesday that he was selected to give the Republican response to President Barack Obama‘s the State of the Union speech next week. The next presidential election is still years away, but Mr. Rubio is already seen as a potential GOP front runner for the nomination.
Amid all this comes a Time Magazine cover story that calls Mr. Rubio “the key player in his party’s efforts to make up to Hispanic voters after a disastrous 2012 campaign.” The cover features a photo of Mr. Rubio with the line “The Republican Savior.”
This prompted Mr. Rubio to tweet this morning:

"There is only one savior, and it is not me. "
