The new Democratic congressman from Staten Island once worked as an intern for Cory Booker.
Max Rose, who defeated Republican Rep. Dan Donovan in New York’s 11th district last week, was an intern at Newark City Hall while Booker served as mayor.
Rose spent five years on active duty in the U.S. Army and was a platoon leader in Afghanistan. He was awarded a Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
The district, which includes part of South Brooklyn, went for Donald Trump by 19 points in 2016. Rose won with 53% of the vote.
