Rosario Dawson confirms relationship with Booker

Rosario Dawson is confirming she’s on Team Cory Booker, saying she’s “very much so” in a relationship with the New Jersey senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

“He’s a wonderful human being, and it’s good to spend some time together when we can,” the “Rent” actress said of Booker in a video interview with TMZ at Reagan National Airport that was posted Thursday.

Dawson, a vocal advocate for Voto Latino, a political organization focused on increasing Hispanic voter participation, showed the Booker presidential swag adorning her bag to TMZ’s camera, sporting one of his campaign’s 2020 “We Rise” buttons.

The 39-year-old performer told the entertainment news site that Booker would make a good commander in chief, saying, “He’s an amazing human being.”

Asked if wedding bells might be in the future for the couple, Dawson replied with a laugh, “I have no idea. I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much who is so brilliant, and kind, and caring and loving.”

In an interview last month, 49-year-old Booker revealed he had a girlfriend whom he’s been dating since before he launched his White House bid.

“I’m dating somebody that’s really special,” Booker told the hosts of Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club.”

“I got a boo.”

Asked if said boo would make a good first lady, Booker replied, “Yes, she would.”
