The cover of the new issue of Time Magazine features a large photo of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and labels him "The Republican Savior."
Rubio sure is having a big week. He was just selected by GOP leadership to deliver the party's response to President Obama's State of the Union. He plans to deliver that speech in English and Spanish. There is much speculation that Rubio could run for president in 2016.
"The charismatic conservative often hailed as the Tea Party's answer to Barack Obama has emerged as the most influential voice in the national debate over immigration reform, Time Magazine writes. "He's also the key player in his party's efforts to make up to Hispanic voters after a disastrous 2012 campaign..."
Rubio, who is Cuban-American, has taken a high profile role in the debate over immigration reform. He worked on the Senate's bipartisan proposal that offers a pathway to citizenship for the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants.
Rubio's response to the Time Magazine hoopla drew attention to his faith. He tweeted: "There is only one savior, and it is not me. #Jesus"
