MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Vice President Walter F. Mondale, a liberal icon who lost the most lopsided presidential election after bluntly telling voters to expect a tax increase if he won, died Monday. He was 93.
The death of the former senator, ambassador and Minnesota attorney general was announced in a statement from his family. No cause was cited.
The article goes on to state the following:
Mondale followed the trail blazed by his political mentor, Hubert H. Humphrey, from Minnesota politics to the U.S. Senate and the vice presidency, serving under Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981.
Former President Jimmy Carter released the following statement:
“Today I mourn the passing of my dear friend Walter Mondale, who I consider the best vice president in our country’s history. During our administration, Fritz used his political skill and personal integrity to transform the vice presidency into a dynamic, policy-driving force that had never been seen before and still exists today. He was an invaluable partner and an able servant of the people of Minnesota, the United States, and the world. Fritz Mondale provided us all with a model for public service and private behavior. Rosalynn and I join all Americans in giving thanks for his exemplary life, and we extend our deepest condolences to his family.”

In a landslide defeat, Mondale only won one state – his home state of Minnesota – in the 1984 presidential election against Ronald Reagan.
Even that was close – Mondale reportedly only won Minnesota by 3,761 votes.

I’m old enough to remember when Walter Mondale chose Geraldine Ferraro to be his running mate in 1984. She was the first woman to be nominated for VP by a major party. Rest in peace, Mr. Vice President. Thank you for your service and for helping to pave the way for VP Harris. pic.twitter.com/3n6B6pZ8Wl
