Marco Rubio edits his U.S. Senate bio

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has changed the passage in his official biography that said his parents "came to America following Fidel Castro's takeover."

Records show his parents first arrived in 1956; Castro did not takeover until 1959. Rubio still defends the characterization of his parents as exiles, a theme he has employed in his political life.

His office said they've changed the bio and it now says Rubio "was born in Miami in 1971 to Cuban exiles who first arrived in the United States in 1956."
