The happy couple was all smiles when they arrived for the debate clutching each other’s hands. There was a seat reserved for the Daredevil actress in the second row of the debate hall. Rosario sat between Cory’s New Hampshire director and Doug Emhoff, who is the husband of fellow candidate Kamala Harris.

Rosario previously missed the first three debates in June, July and September, as she was filming a project in New Mexico. However, the couple remains very supportive of each other’s careers. They attended the premiere of Rosario’s latest film Zombieland: Double Tap in Los Angeles on October 10, along with the premiere of the environmental documentary The Need To Grow, which was narrated by Rosario.

Cory and Rosario reportedly met at a political fundraiser for former NAACP leader Ben Jealous, and the New Jersey senator recalled that Rosario wouldn’t give him “the time of day,” but he eventually worked up the courage to ask her out.

“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,” Cory said. “And this doesn't make me nervous, but that made me nervous, and she gave me her phone number.”

The couple sparked dating rumors in January 2019, when they were spotted on a date in New York City at a Broadway play. Rosario and Cory confirmed they were dating on March 14. “I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much who is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving,” the Men In Black II actress gushed at the time.
