Generation Z has its first big political champion — and his name is Maxwell Alejandro Frost.
With a well-organized campaign, a flood of outside money, and a tireless, bold, youthful approach, Frost, 25, dispatched a bevy of big-name, old-school Democrats and won what likely will be an easy path to Congress by winning the Democratic Primary Election in Florida’s 10th Congressional District.
Frost won decisively over state Sen. Randolph Bracy, former three-term U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, former 12-term U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, and a list of other Democrats: Jack Achenbach, Jeff Boone, Natalie Jackson, Khalid Muneer and Teresa Tachon.
With 142 of 147 precincts reporting, Frost had 34% of the vote, compared with Bracy’s 25%. Grayson was third with 15%.
CD 10, an open district spanning much of northern Orange County, is much different from the district Democratic U.S. Rep. Val Demings has represented for the past six years. Thanks to redistricting, CD 10 is far more diverse.
But it’s no less Democratic.
That means Frost, a Black Latino Democratic community organizer and progressive issues activist, is a heavy favorite going into November.
