Midst a sea of depressing, angry, slightly promising and other Election results tonight turned out to be a victory really inspiring. And met took place in Florida.
In a state that voted with an overwhelming majority in support of jerks like Gov. Ron DeSantis, Democrat Maxwell Frost won Florida’s 10th congressional district — based primarily in Orlando — by a landslide victory, earning 58.8% of the vote (at the time of publication) against his nearest competitor, the Republican Calvin Wimbish, to 39.7%.
Frost’s victory is notable for a number of reasons. you will see him celebrated in most reports as “the first member of Generation Z elected to Congress” because of his righteousness 25 years oldand don’t get me wrong, that’s an amazing achievement.
but was here because, at least on record, Frost is also the first Kingdom Hearts Fan elected to Congress. Here he is back in 2017:
Usually, digging up a politician’s old tweets triggers either boredom or frustration since, given their advanced age, many Congressmen and Senators in the US were already image conscious Politicians when they started using the platform.
But Frost was fair 20 when he wrote this tweet. Just a regular guy doing what we all used to do on The Hellsite, which is sharing little snippets of the people and things we love.
Frost ran because the incumbent, Democrat Val Demings, vacated the seat to try to (unsuccessfully) challenge Marco Rubio in the Senate election. In a more recent tweet, he said: “WE WON!!!! History was made tonight. We made history for Floridians, for Gen Z and for everyone who believes we deserve a better future. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to represent my homeland in the United States Congress.”
Just so you don’t think he went straight off a posting guy Kingdom Hearts on Twitter too congresshow NPR report Frost has been an activist for nearly a decade and previously had “served as the national organizing director of March for Our Lives, a group promoting gun control policies.
