Booker's office acknowledged the mistake.

“Earlier today a young staffer sent an email to Mr. Bell’s campaign by mistake that contained wholly inappropriate language," Beth DeFalco, communications director for Booker, told NRO. "She has apologized to Mr. Bell. Sen. Booker does not condone that type of language or tone being used anywhere.”

Booker is polling 13.4 percentage points ahead of Bell, according to the TPM PollTracker average.
