What sad news.
Geraldine Ferraro passed away today. She was an attorney and member of the United States House of Representatives. She was the first female vice president candidate representing a major party. Ferraro was 75.
During the 2008 election Geraldine Ferraro was viciously attacked by the far left after she suggested that Obama was winning because he was black.
Of course, the far left blasted her for such “racist comments.”
She will be missed.
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% to 40% and then nearly swept the electoral votes, 525 to 13.
