Rosario Dawson Is ‘So Proud Of’ Boyfriend Cory Booker After His Reelection

Rosario Dawson celebrates boyfriend Cory Booker’s reelection to the U.S. Senate.

This week, the incumbent New Jersey senator defended his seat when he defeated Republican Rik Mehta in the 2020 election.

On Wednesday, Dawson congratulated Senator Booker’s win by posting a sweet message on her Instagram page.

“So proud of and grateful for you my love. I got to vote for you here in New Jersey and am so glad that you overwhelmingly and rightfully won your seat again,” the actress wrote.

“To know your leadership will continue to guide us with love, brilliance, patience, grace and effectiveness is the kind of representation and hope we need,” she continued. “We saw record turnout and need to keep building so that we can win both houses and make real change!”

That same day, Senator Booker appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to discuss his victory and the legalization of recreational marijuana in his state.

When Kimmel asked Senator Booker, “You advocated for recreational cannabis becoming legal in your state, will you celebrate that?” Dawson crashed the Zoom interview and answered, “I might.”

“I don’t know what she was more excited to do, vote for me as a new New Jersey resident, or vote for marijuana,” he joked. “I don’t know what’s more popular.”

“I was sad not to be able to vote in California. There were such incredible and important propositions and measures to vote for, which passed, which I’m so grateful for," Dawson added.

The two have been dating since October 2018, and were believed to have first gone public in January 2019 when they were spotted in the audience of Broadway’s “Dear Evan Hansen.”
