Ferraro To Join Fox Election Team

October 26, 1999

NEW YORK (AP) _ Former Democratic vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro has joined the Fox News Channel as a political commentator for the 2000 elections.

Ferraro, a co-host of CNN’s ``Crossfire″ from 1996-98, will appear on a variety of Fox programs before getting a regular once-a-week spot as the election season heats up.

She is not the only ex-New York politician on Fox; former Sen. Alfonse D’Amato is also a Fox commentator.

The former Queens Congresswoman became the first woman in U.S. history to secure a major party nomination for vice president when she ran with Walter Mondale in 1984.

She has also served as ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Commission.
