NEW: Former Vice President Walter Mondale Dies at 93

Former US Vice President Walter Mondale died at the age of 93 Monday.

Mondale served as Jimmy Carter’s Vice President and was the Democrat nominee for president in 1984.

Ronald Reagan defeated Walter Mondale in a historic landslide victory in 1984.

According to Mondale’s spokesperson, the former Vice President died peacefully and of natural causes.

Axios reported:

Mondale spoke by phone on Sunday with President Biden and former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, as well as Vice President Harris and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, said his friend and former campaign staffer Tom Cosgrove. While he and his family believed his death was imminent, after those calls he “perked up.”

In a final goodbye email to 320 staffers spanning four decades, Mondale told his staffers how much they meant to him, adding he knew that they’d keep up “the good fight” and “Joe in the White House certainly helps.” The email, which was shared with Axios, was prepared to be sent upon his death.

Cosgrove said Mondale had been deeply worried about the impact of a potential second Donald Trump term on American democracy. “There was a difference after the inauguration – a letting go,” Cosgrove said. “There was a big exhale of relief.”
