Florida’s Maxwell Frost to be first Gen Z member of Congress

(ORLANDO, FLA) — Democrat Maxwell Frost is the projected midterms winner of Florida’s 10th district, representing Orlando, making him the first Gen Z person to be elected to Congress.
25-year-old gun reform and social justice activist won the seat that was vacated by Val Demings who ran for the U.S. Senate.
Frosts win was not unexpected due to the liberal make-up of the 10th district.
His campaign focused on the issues Democrats believe appeal most to young voters: gun violence, climate change, abortion rights and expanded healthcare.
After the Uvalde school shooting that left 21 people dead, Frost challenged Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis over his views on weapons.

The young Democrat beat a candidate nearly three times his age.
Frost is among six Florida newcomers to the U.S. House of Representatives after the congressional map was aggressively redrawn by Gov. Ron DeSantis.
The the 13th District seat was won by Republican Anna Paulina Luna after losing in 2020 to Crist.
Luna, an Air Force veteran, was endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
“They are trying to ruin us,” Luna said about Democrats at a recent rally. “Freedom will prevail in this country.”
