Congress just elected its first Kingdom Hearts fan


The midterm elections across the United States on Tuesday surprised most pundits and political figures who expected a “Red Wave” of opposition that, though some key races are still being counted, didn’t manifest itself. The night of seat-swapping did include one high-profile win for gamerkind: the newest congressman from Florida’s 10th District, Maxwell Alejandro Frost, is apparently into Kingdom Hearts.

A bilingual Democrat of Puerto Rican, Lebanese, and Haitian descent, Frost is maybe more notably the first member of Gen Z elected to congress—the age group generally defined as being born between 1997 and 2012. At age 25, Frost just crosses that threshold and will become the youngest person in congress when sworn in in January.
