MIAMI, Fla. — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio mistakenly posted a photo of the late U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings in a tweet meant to honor the late U.S. Rep. John Lewis.
The Republican senator quickly replaced the tweet Saturday with a new post. He acknowledged the error and displayed a video of himself with Lewis, a Democratic lawmaker who died Friday at the age of 80. Both Lewis and Cummings fought for civil rights.
Lewis represented Atlanta; the Democratic Cummings represented a district in Maryland for 12 terms until he died in October at age 68.
