Sen. Cory Booker's run for the presidency didn't turn out the way he planned -- but it appears he won a dubious honor: member of Congress who missed more votes than any other lawmaker.

In fact, Booker D-N.J., narrowly beat out Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for the distinction of missing more votes than anyone else in Congress last year, according to a report.

While running for president last year, Booker missed 65 percent of votes in the Senate, more than any other lawmaker in either the Senate or the House of Representatives, including those vying for the presidency, according to NJ.com, which cited data from Congressional Quarterly.

Sanders, the current frontrunner of the Democratic primary race, was a close second, missing 64 percent of votes in the Senate last year.
