Frost defies expectations of a Gen-Z newcomer running in a field of traditional candidates.
Democratic congressional candidate Maxwell Alejandro Frost continues to defy expectations as a generation-Z newcomer running in a field full of traditional candidates — announcing a stunning $407,000 fundraising effort for the latest period.
Frost is a 24-year-old progressive activist taking on a state Senator, a former State Attorney, a well-known preacher, and a civil rights lawyer with a national profile in the Democratic Primary Election for the Democratic-stronghold Florida’s 10th Congressional District
His campaign announced Wednesday it raised $407,211 from 13,920 contributions received during the fourth quarter of 2021, covering October, November, and December.
Official fundraising reports for the fourth quarter have not yet been posted by the Federal Election Commission.
Frost’s campaign did not reveal any additional details of his campaign finances Wednesday.
Frost’s announced quarterly haul is more than double the $169,000 his campaign raised in his first reporting period, the third quarter of 2021, when he led all CD 10 candidates in fundraising for the period.
“These fundraising numbers show that our campaign is a force to be reckoned with,” his campaign manager Kevin Lata said in a statement released Wednesday.
CD 10 covers western Orange County. The proposed redistricting maps would not change it much. The seat is opening because three-term incumbent Democratic Rep. Val Demings is running for the U.S. Senate instead of for reelection.
For the Democratic Primary Election, Frost is up against Sen. Randolph Bracy of Ocoee, former State Attorney Aramis Ayala of Windermere, St. Mark AME Church Senior Pastor Rev. Terence Gray of Orlando, civil rights lawyer Natalie Jackson of Orlando, teacher Teresa Tachon, and entrepreneur Jack Achenbach of Orlando, among others.
Bracy, who entered the race in late May, had the largest campaign fund, with $272,891, at the end of the third quarter of 2021, according to the most recent reports publicly available through the FEC. In those reports, Frost debuted in second place in the money chase, after having campaigned for only about half the period.
“Our campaign’s message is resonating with working families who want representation that has the courage to ask for more,” Frost said in the statement issued Wednesday by his campaign. “Nurses, forklift drivers, teachers, caregivers, social workers, farmers, union organizers, and cashiers are donating to this campaign because they want a system that works for and values every single human being — a representative who leads with love for their community and is committed to the fight for everything and everyone.”
The Republican candidates in CD 10 include Orlando non-profit executive Willie Montague, Orlando businessman Troy Rambaransingh, and Angela Walls-Windhauser of Winter Garden, among others.
Frost’s campaign said its fourth-quarter haul works out to an average donation of $29.25. His campaign said 99% of the donations were under $100, with teachers and nurses among top contributing groups.
Joe Biden Website Promises to Ship Four Free Coronavirus Tests to Residents Within 7-12 Days
The White House announced Tuesday President Joe Biden’s website for Americans to request free coronavirus tests was now live.
Officials said the website, covidtests.gov, was live but still remained in the beta phase of the programming and testing process.
The president expects to officially launch the website on Wednesday as he also plans to hold an official press conference at the White House to mark his upcoming one-year anniversary as president.
Families can request four free coronavirus tests on the website after putting in their name and address.
The government will begin shipping the test within 7-12 days, according to a notice on the website.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki acknowledged during the daily briefing that the website was live, but only operating in a limited capacity.
“We can’t guarantee there won’t be a bug or two,” she said.

Many Americans trying to travel and gather with family over the Christmas holiday were unable to get access to tests or faced long waits in line for several hours at testing centers.
Biden was initially defensive about his administration’s performance, scoffing at questions from reporters during a December event on fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
“What took so long is it didn’t take long at all,” he said, complaining the omicron variant of the virus caught everyone off guard.
Despite Biden’s efforts to ramp up and increase testing capacity, state governors have called out the federal government for making it harder to get tests for their residents.
“You know, so now it’s sort of hijacking the tests that we already had plans for, and we’re now getting some of those providers to tell us they no longer have the rapid tests,” Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said in an interview on CBS on Sunday.
Survey: Global Majority Feel Misled by Media, Business, Political Leaders
The majority of people across the globe feel that are being misled by journalists, government leaders, and business executives, according to Edelman’s 2022 global “Trust Barometer.”
The survey found that 67 percent of people globally are “convinced” they are being “purposely” misled by journalists and reporters, which is up eight percent from 2021.
Additionally, 66 percent think their country’s government leaders “purposely” mislead them, which has risen nine percent from 2021, while 63 percent said business leaders “purposely” mislead them, which has increased seven percent from 2021.
When respondents were asked about trust, 46 percent said they do not trust journalists, which has risen one percent from last year.
Additionally, 42 percent said they do not trust the county’s government leaders, which has risen one percent from last year. 49 percent said they do not trust CEOs, which has grown one percent from last year.

However, 66 percent of the respondents said they trust their own CEO, which has risen three percent since 2021.
The survey also found that 76 percent “worry about false information or fake news being used as a weapon,” which has risen four percent since last year.
Edelman’s survey had 31,050 respondents globally, spanning 27 countries. The survey was taken between November 1 and 24 of last year and had a margin of error plus or minus 0.6 percent points.

Nolte: Congressional Generic Ballot Has GOP Up 9 Points over Democrats
“The 2022 midterm elections are now 294 days away, and Republicans maintain a strong lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress,” notes Rasmussen Reports.
“[I]f the elections for Congress were held today, 48% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 39% would vote for the Democrat,” the pollster reported. “Just four percent (4%) would vote for some other candidate, but another nine percent (9%) are not sure.”
Rasmussen showed these same results back in December.
Rasmussen is not only one of the most respectable and reliable pollsters out there and has been for two decades; these results track with what we see everywhere.
To begin with, His Fraudulency Joe Biden’s approval rating sits in the low 40s, while his disapproval rating is in the 50s. On top of that, Gallup just released a poll that showed a 14 point swing to Republicans over 2021.
Other pollsters show the generic ballot closer, but those pollsters are not as reliable as Rasmussen. What’s more, history has shown us that the Republican party can enjoy sweeping victories even when they are tied or close in this specific poll.
For example, in 2014, there was a huge red wave, even though the GOP was only up an average of 2.4 points. In 2010, the GOP swamped the Democrats, and the generic poll only had Republicans up by two points. As is the case with almost all polls, the Republican party tends to outperform the polling while Democrats tend to underperform.

Even the left-wing serial liars over at NBC News are using the word “shellacking” to describe what’s coming for the Democrat party in this year’s midterms:
Over the last 30 years, the NBC News poll has given us a good idea if the president’s party is headed for an exceptionally good midterm election, a shellacking, or somewhere in-between.
And right now, the arrows are pretty much pointing in the “shellacking” territory for President Biden and the Democrats as we debut our Midterm Meter, which will use our poll to gauge the overall political environment for the president’s party.
NBC points out that right now, a whopping 71 percent of the public say the country’s on the wrong track, Joe Biden’s job approval sits at 52 percent, and…
In 1994, 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018 — when the president’s party suffered big losses — overwhelming majorities said the country was headed on the wrong track before the election; each president’s job rating was below 50 percent; and the president’s party trailed on the generic ballot.
Joe Biden and his Democrat party are in full control of the federal government. The result is chaos, misery, and disease: empty store shelves, a spike in violent crime, record inflation, a southern border in chaos, and a raging coronavirus. Additionally, Russia, North Korea, and China are getting adventurous, and who knows how many American hostages are still stuck in Afghanistan?
Add to that the culture wars Democrats have launched to include racism and gay porn in public school curriculum and to force all of us to believe a man can magically transform into a woman.
As I’ve said before, this country is on the verge of something more than a shellacking. Instead, we are headed for a significant political realignment.
