Actress Rosario Dawson said she voted for Bernie Sanders on the same day her boyfriend and former presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker endorsed Joe Biden.
In an Instagram post on Monday night, the “Men in Black II” actress and activist, who was a surrogate for Sanders in 2016, said she was proud to support the 78-year-old socialist senator from Vermont.
“I got to vote for Bernie again and I did,” Dawson wrote in the lengthy post.
“Whoever it is that you’re supporting I hope that you are doing it consciously, with heart and with a ballot. Talking about things helps but actions speak louder than words.”
Dawson refrained from attacking the former veep who her boyfriend endorsed earlier on Monday.
Booker became the latest presidential drop-out to endorse Biden on Monday morning in a tweet that contained a thinly veiled shot at Sanders.
“The answer to hatred and division is to reignite our spirit of common purpose,” Booker wrote on Twitter.
“Joe Biden won’t only win – he’ll show there’s more that unites us than divides us.”
The “Rent” actress confirmed her relationship with the former Newark, New Jersey, mayor in March 2019, calling him a “wonderful human being.”
Dawson, who would have presumably voted for Sanders in the California primary last week, is the co-founder of Voto Latino, a nonprofit organization that encourages young Hispanic and Latino Americans to register to vote and become more politically involved.
