Marco Rubio Tweets That He Is Not the Savior You’re Looking for
Is Florida Senator Marco Rubio the savior of the Republican party? That’s debatable. But according to Rubio, he is not the savior of anything.
That title belongs to Jesus – at least that’s what a recent tweet suggests.
“There is only one savior, and it is not me. #Jesus,” tweeted Rubio early Thursday morning.
There is only one savior, and it is not me. #Jesus

Rubio is undoubtedly responding to a new TIME magazine cover story that labels the junior Senator “The Republican Savior.”
The tweet is a bit vague, however. Either Rubio is simply speaking out against the use of the word “savior” in a non-biblical fashion, or he’s implying that Jesus is the savior of the Republican party.
Damn those hashtags. They can be a bit opaque in their meaning.
TIME has responded to Rubio:
@marcorubio Point taken, but we just said you’re the ‘Republican savior.’
