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.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
