    MIAMI (AP) — Social media of Republican Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Dan Sullivan of Alaska mistakenly posted photos of the late U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings with comments meant to honor the late U.S. Rep. John Lewis.

    The posts were quickly revised with photos of Lewis, a Democratic lawmaker who died Friday at the age of 80.

    Rubio acknowledged the Twitter error and displayed a video of himself with Lewis.

    In response to an email, Sullivan spokesman Mike Anderson wrote:  “Senator Sullivan’s staff made a mistake trying to honor an American legend.”
