And so, in addition to the more typical questions about his candidacy — What are his odds in one of the most crowded and diverse Democratic primaries in American history? Could his candidacy be hurt by past connections to Wall Street and Silicon Valley? — people have also been wondering:

Mr. Booker, 49, who has talked about how his mother was pestering him to get married, has tended to be tight-lipped. But last month, he opened up a little bit more.

“I’m dating somebody really special,” he said during a radio appearance. “I got a boo.”

“I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much,” Ms. Dawson, 39, said in the video, batting away a question about the possibility of a future engagement.
