Having emerged victorious in his high-profile Senate run-off race, this 33 year-old Georgia native is the youngest person elected to the Senate since President Joe Biden back in 1973.
After undergrad at Georgetown University and receiving his Masters at the London School of Economics, Jon ran a media production company that produced documentaries investigating corruption and war crimes for international news organizations. He returned stateside and worked as a national security aide for Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson before running unsuccessfully in a special election for Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District seat. Though he lost that race, it gained him national attention, aiding in his eventual run for Senate.
