Maryland governor Martin O'Malley, a rising Democratic star who has generated some 2016 presidential buzz, published a photo on his Twitter feed this afternoon of New Mexico's Republican governor Susana Martinez, along with a delegation of visitors from the southwestern state. O'Malley's message, however, misspelled Martinez's first name--and said she was from Mexico, not New Mexico.

Here is how tweet originally read: "Great to meet Governor Susan Martinez & the delegation from Mexico today."

The mistakes have since been corrected.
