#BREAKING : Walter Mondale, who rose from small-town Minnesota to become Democratic nominee for president, dies at 93.
On Saturday afternoon, Walter Mondale sent this note to his former staffers and campaign alumni, saying: “Together we have accomplished so much and I know you will keep up the good fight. Joe in the White House certainly helps.”
“WELL, MY TIME HAS COME.” Here’s the email Walter Mondale sent 300+ staffers and associates over the weekend. He noted how he looked forward to seeing his late wife, Joan, and late daughter, Eleanor. “Never has a public servant had a better group of people working at their side!”
Walter Mondale was my mentor from the first time I worked for him in college. My job then? Doing the furniture inventory. He encouraged me to run for office and was always there for me. But I wasn’t the only one. He saw his mission as preparing a new generation of leaders.
Walter F. Mondale dies at 93. The former vice president and Democratic senator was a major player in politics for two decades.
