NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Democratic Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker is accusing his U.S. Senate race rival of making bigoted comments following a newspaper interview in which Booker was ambiguous about his sexuality.
Republican Steve Lonegan (LAHN'-uh-guhn) says it's "weird" Booker won't refute rumors he's gay. Lonegan says he "personally likes being a guy."
Booker said in a Washington Post profile Monday he "loves" when people call him gay and his sexuality shouldn't matter. He says he hopes people don't vote for him because they think he's heterosexual.
Lonegan in an interview on Steve Malzberg's Newsmax talk show brought up an old interview in which Booker said he likes to get manicures and pedicures.
Booker's campaign says in a statement issued Wednesday that Lonegan's comments are "disappointing, bigoted and far outside the mainstream."
