Central Florida Democrat Maxwell Frost Becomes the Youngest Member of Congress

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.
