Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., noted just how uninteresting life would be for Americans without Florida.

The comments came in a Tuesday tweet Rubio posted to mark the anniversary of Florida becoming a state.

"175 years ago today the United States made one of its best decisions ever, it admitted #Florida to the Union," he wrote. "America, just think how boring things would be without us."

Rubio's parents lived in Miami after leaving Cuba before Fidel Castro's takeover. They stayed in Florida until 1979 and then moved to Las Vegas. But in 1985 they returned to South Florida, where their son started his political career as a city commissioner in West Miami.

Rubio later was elected to the Florida House of Representatives before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010.
