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.’
