Geraldine Ferraro, Dead at 75

What sad news.

Geraldine Ferraro passed away today. She was an attorney and US Representative. She was 75.

During the 2008 election Geraldine Ferraro was viciously attacked by the left for suggesting that Obama was winning because he was black.

Of course, the far left savaged her after these “racist” comments.

She will be missed.
CNN reported:

Geraldine Ferraro, a former congresswoman and vice presidential candidate, has died, according to family statement. She was 75.

In 1984, Ferraro was the first female vice presidential candidate from a major U.S. political party when she ran with Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale. They lost by a landslide to Republican presidential candidate Ronald Reagan and vice presidential candidate George H.W. Bush.

In what became the first of Reagan’s two terms in the White House, the Reagan-Bush ticket won the popular vote 58.8{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} to 40{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} and then nearly swept the electoral votes, 525 to 13.
