Maxwell Frost :
The Gen Z nominee for US house of representatives
Frost would take Rep. Val Demings' position if elected, who is running against Sen. Marco Rubio this November.
He belongs to the new generation of progressive Democratic candidates with working-class roots running this year.
Frost's victory in Democratic primaries for Florida's 10th Congressional District almost certainly secures his road to Congress.
In November, Frost will face off against Republican Calvin Wimbish.
Frost almost meets the age limit to serve in the US House at 25 years old. The first election in which members of Generation Z can run for a congressional position is the 2022 midterms.
Frost campaigned on important progressive causes, such as Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, cancellation of student loans, and ending gun violence.
Following the tragic mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012, he first got involved in political activism while still in high school.
In addition to outraising his rivals, Frost received significant national endorsements from progressive figures, such as Vermont Sen.
