Booker also posted pictures of President Joe Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris to his official Instagram account. He wrote, “Hallelujah and Amen! A wonderful day. A renewal of hope; a renewal of possibility; and a renewal of our democracy.”

Back in 2019, Dawson opened up to The Washington Post about her love for Booker. She revealed, “I’m in love! I am absolutely in love, and it is so exciting…he’s so charming and so confident and so capable, but it’s not like that translates to being some super-smooth kind of guy…that’s not his style. What wins me over with him is definitely the dad jokes.”

Dawson also posted on Instagram in November when Booker won re-election in the Senate.

Under a black and white photo of the two of them, she wrote, “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. 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. We saw record turnout and need to keep building so that we can win both houses and make real change! #EyeOnThePrize #MIDTERMS#2022IsAroundTheCorner
