The politician stopped by Power 105.1's morning show The Breakfast Club in February, and the hosts asked him about his dating life and how being single might affect his presidential campaign. "There's two more years, so give me some time. My girlfriend is listening to this," Cory said. "Before I declare president, I'm dating someone that's really special…I got a boo."

Cory and Rosario, who have known each other for years, were spotted together at a movie theater in New York City in January, sparking rumors that they were an item. "He literally almost ran me over when he was racing around the corner to get to the concession stand before the movie started," a source told Page Six at the time. The Democrat has previously been linked to CBS morning host Gayle King and writer Cleo Wade.

Cory has been serving as the junior United States senator from New Jersey since 2013 and is the first African-American US senator from the state. Before that, he served as the mayor of Newark from 2006 to 2013. He's been hard at work, so when a reporter asked the senator about the Rosario dating rumors in January, Cory refused to answer the question because he was dealing with more serious political matters at the time. "Government shutdown, let's focus on what's important," the politician said. 

Cory announced at the top of February that he was running for president.

He launched his presidential campaign on February 1, after months of speculation that he would be running in 2020 against President Donald Trump.

When Cory was asked on the radio show if Rosario would make a good first lady, he said: "Yes, she would." A Latina in the White House doesn't sound half bad to us!
