It’s Campaign Season, So Cory Booker Has a New Girlfriend

Published

on

Monday PageSix confirmed that Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), a likely 2020 candidate for president, as a new girlfriend.

“Presumptive presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker and ‘Rent’ star Rosario Dawson have been dating at least since December, we’re told,” the magazine said.

Apparently, the two have been spotted at a movie and a Broadway show together. Dawson was the star of the 2005 film “Rent.”

This is not the first time Booker, whose sexuality has been questioned throughout his career, has conveniently found himself in a relationship during campaign season. Also reported by Page Six in 2013, Booker began dating Bianca Levin, a partner at Gang Tyre Ramer & Brown talent firm in Los Angeles with many huge-name Hollywood clients.

The pair began dating in June of that year, and met at a Booker fundraiser.

Booker has already faced scrutiny about being an unmarried presidential candidate.

“America is accustomed to not just a chief executive who leads the government, but a First Family that rounds out the ceremonial and symbolic aspects of the job,” Philly Inquirer said in Booker profile in December. “Spouses and their children can become national figures in their own rights, and often soften a candidate’s image.”

The standard of the “American family” has long be set. The last bachelor elected to the highest office in the land was Grover Cleveland in 1886. Cleveland married shortly thereafter, during his first term. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), also single, faced questions similar to those facing Booker when he ran for president in 2016.

Booker’s mother has filled the traditional female figure role during past campaigns, including his campaign for mayor of Newark.

Booker is expected to announce a decision on a presidential run in January.

Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation

They say they’ll vote ‘No.’

Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.

Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.

It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
