    He said, “I have no doubt he’s off to an incredible start in what I’m sure will be a long, distinguished career.”

    Frost is a member of the Democratic Party.

    He campaigned on gun law reform, expanding health care, increasing access to housing and fighting climate change.

    In a discussion with the ABC television network on Wednesday, Frost said younger voters were an important part of his win.

    周三,在美国广播公司电视网络的一次讨论中,弗罗斯特表示,年轻选民是他获胜的重要组成部分。

    "What that shows me is that there's a lot of hope and promise in this nation as young people are starting to rise up and really step into their political power," Frost said.

    弗罗斯特说:“这告诉我,这个国家充满了希望,因为年轻人开始站起来,真正掌握他们的政治权利。”

    Frost said his family is Afro-Latino.

    He is part of a growing number of Americans who are more racially and ethnically diverse than earlier generations.

    他是越来越多的美国人中的一员,他们的种族和民族比前几代人更多样化。

    Frost became known as a national director for the gun safety group March For Our Lives, started by the survivors of the 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

    弗罗斯特是枪支安全组织“为我们的生命游行”的全国主任,该组织是由2018年佛罗里达州帕克兰校园枪击案的幸存者创建的。

    He said he wants “transformational change” and will start by working on a plan to put background checks in place for all gun purchases.

    他说,他希望进行“变革性的改变”,并将着手制定一项计划,对所有枪支购买进行背景调查。

    Frost defeated three well-known Democrats in the primary election earlier this year.
