Rubio mistakenly tweets tribute to Lewis with picture of late Elijah Cummings

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) prompted pushback Saturday after tweeting a photo of himself and the late Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) in a tribute to the late John Lewis (D-Ga.), who died this week.

Rubio on Saturday shared a photo of himself and Cummings, tweeting that it was "an honor to know & be blessed with the opportunity to serve in Congress with JohnLewis a genuine & historic American hero."

Rubio also changed his profile picture on Twitter to himself and a photo of Cummings Saturday, according to multiple reports. He has since changed the photo to one of himself and Lewis.

The Florida lawmaker later tweeted “Earlier today I tweeted an incorrect photo.”
