PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Sen. Marco Rubio received backlash on Saturday for posting a photo of himself with Rep. Elijah Cummings while attaching a tribute to Rep. John Lewis.
He later deleted the tweet and posted a second one, with a photo of himself and Lewis.

Lewis died Friday after a long and distinguished career as a congressman and civil rights icon.
While acknowledging the mistake, Rubio offered no apology for it.
Cummings passed away in October of last year.
