TIME crowns Rubio savior -Rubio to Time: I’m not the savior
Newscast Media WASHINGTON, D.C.—After being featured on the cover of TIME magazine that dubbed him the “Savior” of the Republican Party, Senator Marco Rubio didn’t seem too amused with such an elevation and took to Twitter to declare who the true savior is.
“There is only one savior, and it’s not me. #Jesus”, Rubio tweeted.
The magazine cover with the sub-title “How Marco Rubio became the new voice of the GOP” can be viewed here.
GOP leaders chose Rubio to deliver the official Republican response to Barack Obama’s State of the Union address next week, in both English and Spanish.
“I look forward to laying out the Republican case of how our ideas can help people close the gap between their dreams and the opportunities to realize them,” Rubio responded in a statement.
Speculation about a possible Rubio run in 2016 for president continues to grow, and other names being mentioned are Rand Paul, Paul Ryan and Jeb Bush. Within the GOP a consensus is developing that the Party needs to engage in more effective outreach to the Hispanic, African, and Asian American communities.
