In Congress, Maxwell Frost is going to be the voice of his generation. The 25-year-old Democrat cruised to victory over 51-year-old Republican Calvin Wimbish in Florida's reliably blue Orlando-area 10th District and will be the first member of Generation Z in Congress, BuzzFeed reports. Frost, who will also be the first Afro-Cuban in Congress, is just old enough to serve in the House of Representatives and just young enough to count as a member of Gen Z, defined as people born between 1997 and 2012. In other firsts:
- Maryland has elected its first Black governor, the New York Times reports. Wes Moore, a Democrat, will replace retiring Republican Gov. Larry Hogan.
- Maura Healey, Massachusetts' attorney general, will be the country's first openly lesbian governor, the AP reports. The Democrat defeated Trump-endorsed Republican Geoff Diehl and will replace Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, who decided not to run for a third term.
- In Arkansas, Republican Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be the state's first female governor. The former White House press secretary is also the first daughter in US history to be elected governor of a state her father formerly led, CNN reports.
