From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Theodore A. "Ted" Mondale (born October 12 1957) is a politician and entrepreneur. He is the son of the former senator, ambassador and Vice President Walter Mondale and Joan Mondale. He is a former Minnesota state senator and is currently the CEO of Nazca Solutions, Inc. - a technology fulfillment venture based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

History

After serving in the Minnesota State Senate, in 1998 Ted Mondale sought the Democratic primary nomination for Minnesota governor. Coincidentally, the race included three other candidates from families famously connected in Minnesota politics: Skip Humphrey, the son of Vice President Hubert Humphrey (then Attorney General); Mark Dayton of the Dayton Department Store dynasty (then State Auditor); and Mike Freeman, son of former governor Orville Freeman (then Hennepin County, Minnesota district attorney). Mondale, more fiscally moderate than the other candidates and who had distanced himself from labor, did not prevail in the primary.

Later, in 1999, he was appointed as chairman of the Metropolitan Council in the Cabinet of Governor Jesse Ventura. He oversaw the initiation of high density housing/retail development in the Twin Cities, as well as light-rail transportation planning from the suburban areas to the central cities.

Family

Mondale and his wife, Pam, are the parents of three children.

Mondale's sister, Eleanor Mondale, is a television personality, who began her television career at a Minneapolis local network affiliate, and moved on to the E! Online cable channel and eventually the CBS show "This Morning." She has also had small roles in a few movies and TV shows. Ms. Mondale has been battling brain cancer since 2005, but as of summer, 2006, the cancer is in remission. Ms. Mondale is currently co-host of WCCO Radio's midday show with Susie Jones, following the retirement of Pat Miles.

Mondale's brother, William H. Mondale, is an attorney and a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Minnesota from 1990 to 2000.
