Former Vice President Walter Mondale spoke about politics, past, present and future, with Gary Eichten, MPR News Editor-at-Large, in front of hundreds Thursday at a Westminster Town Hall Forum.
Mondale, a Minnesota native, was elected vice president of the United States in 1976, and he ran for president in 1984 on the Democratic ticket. During the conversation, a famous line was played from Mondale’s speech when he accepted the presidential nomination in which he said, “Mr. Regan will raise taxes, and so will I. He won’t tell you. I just did.”
