Reacting to an article in The Hill reporting that Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) has a girlfriend, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) complained that Americans have been electing “likeable people” instead of fighters.

Americans should considering Booker’s political goals and record, not his personal life or behavior, Rep. Omar tweeted Thursday:

“Why is this news? His platform, congressional record and how he plans to win in 2020 needs to be the focus. Looking for politicians, who you can have a beer with or whatever is why we continue to elect likable people who don’t have the courage to fight for what is right!”

Omar included in her tweet a link to the story, “Cory Booker confirms he has a girlfriend,” which discussed Booker’s unmarried status in light of his plans to run for president in 2020.
