Michigan State Senator Kenneth Horn accidentally took a swipe at Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at a campaign event in Waterford, Michigan, tonight.
“I am so fed up, at this point, with first-term senators…who are president of the United States,” he said.
But Rubio is a first-term senator.

Horn was, of course, trying to praise Rubio for his experience, while simultaneously bashing President Obama, who was a first-term senator from Illinois when he first got elected to the White House.
Being a first-term senator is one of the many similarities between Rubio and Obama — and one Rubio is often asked about on the trail.
“Barack Obama kind of left a sour taste in my mouth when it comes to inexperience,” Horn continued.
“But let me tell you, I will never again confuse inexperience with leadership. And that’s what I see in Marco Rubio,” he said.
