Rosario Dawson missed her boyfriend Sen. Cory Booker’s debate night.

The actress, 40, wasn’t able to tune into the second round of Democratic debates Wednesday night due to work.

In response to a follower asking if she was watching television live, she responded, “I wish! I’m filming in New Mexico so missing tonight’s debate as well…! Enjoy!!!!”

In another tweet, she confirmed she was working on the crime series “Briarpatch,” which is also set to star Edward Asner and Alan Cumming.

“Just jumped on my phone to see how goes but will watch later when I wrap around 2amish…!” she added.

Dawson confirmed in March that she and Booker were dating, saying, “He’s a wonderful human being, it’s good to spend some time together when we can.”

The senator later opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about the difficulties of dating during a presidential campaign because “people are watching.”

“You know, she was visiting me in D.C., and then she left to the airport, and she got ambushed at the airport,” Booker told Degeneres about the now-famous TMZ video in which Dawson was asked about their relationship. “I suddenly get this little video from her saying ‘I got TMZ’d! I don’t have makeup on,’ this and this and that.”

He said she survived the TMZ ambush well, adding, “She’s just an incredible human being.”
