Geraldine Ferraro, First Woman to Run For Vice President, Dies at 75
This just in: Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman to run for the vice presidential office on a major party ticket, has died at age 75. The cause was blood cancer. Ferraro ran with Walter Mondale in 1984 against Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush; the Ferraro-Mondale ticket lost by a landslide. Ferraro revealed she had blood cancer two years ago, and said that she hoped to live long enough to see the first female president inaugurated.
