Former Vice President Walter Mondale Dies at 93

Former Democratic vice president and presidential candidate Walter Mondale has died.

His family announced his passing Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Mondale served as Jimmy Carter’s vice president from 1977 to 1981.

In the 1984 U.S. presidential election, he suffered the biggest defeat in electoral history when he lost to Ronald Reagan.

While serving as vice president, Mondale moved the vice president’s office to the West Wing of the White House and started having weekly lunches with the president.

Both of those traditions continue today.

Mondale was 93 years old when he died.
