Former Vice President Walter Mondale dead at 93

Walter Mondale, who served as vice president under Jimmy Carter and was the Democratic nominee for president in 1984, died Monday at 93, according to a family spokesperson.

Nearing his death on Sunday, the elder statesman from Minnesota spoke by phone with President Biden and former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, as well as Vice President Harris and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, Axios reported.

In a goodbye email obtained by the website, Mondale told 320 staffers who worked for him over his four decade-long political career how much they meant to him and said he knew they would “keep up the good fight”
