Share this story:

Activist Maxwell Frost, who defeated two former members of Congress in the Democratic primary, easily won in Central Florida, keeping a U.S. House seat blue.

The 25-year old Frost easily bested Republican Calvin Wimbish 59 percent to 39.5 percent, holding the seat that had been held by U.S. Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., who lost her challenge to U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Tuesday.

“History was made tonight. We made history for Floridians, for Gen Z, and for everyone who believes we deserve a better future,” Frost announced. “I am beyond thankful for the opportunity to represent my home in the United States Congress.”

Frost upended a primary field which included former U.S. Reps. Corrine Brown, D-Fla., and Alan Grayson, D-Fla., back in August.

Frost will represent parts of Orange County in a secure district for Democrats.
