Marco Rubio Time Magazine cover: Rubio 'The Republican Savior' sparks controversy

Is Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) the Republican savior? 

Time Magazine released the cover of its Feb. 18 edition on the web Thursday. The magazine features Rubio with the phrase, "The Republican Savior". In the article, Time calls the Senator "the new voice of the GOP" in a story that is called "Immigrant Son". 

In a tweet, Rubio responded to the cover saying, "There is only one savior, and it is not me. #Jesus." 

On Wednesday, it was announced that Rubio would give the GOP response to the President's State of the Union Address next week.
