Cory Booker Reveals How He Met Girlfriend Rosario Dawson

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is opening up about how he met his girlfriend Rosario Dawson!

The 49-year-old politician says that he met Rosario at a fundraiser for Ben Jealous, the former president of the NAACP.

“I was trying to help him out, but she didn’t give me the time of day,” Cory said during in a CNN Town Hall. “So we met again, and I had one of those really awkward experiences. I’m a United States senator, and I had to get up the courage to walk up to her and ask her for her phone number. And this doesn’t make me nervous, but that made me nervous.”

Rosario gave him her phone number during their second meeting!

“She is an incredible girlfriend,” he added. “I’m very lucky to be in a relationship with someone who is just so incredibly special, but more importantly has taught me so much in a very short period of time.”
