Senator Bill Hagerty, Republican of Tennessee, extended his sympathies to Mr. Mondale’s family Monday night on Twitter.

“While Walter Mondale and I had different political beliefs, when I was U.S. Amb. to Japan, a position he once held, he was always gracious and kind with his time & advice,” he said. “I will treasure our calls & correspondence.”

The Rev. Franklin Graham, the leader of Samaritan’s Purse, an evangelical organization, said on Twitter that Mr. Mondale had served the nation faithfully for years and that his family would appreciate the prayers of Americans.

The opposition party in Mr. Mondale’s home state also gave him a nod on Monday night.

“In spite of our obvious political differences, there is no denying Mondale was a man of character who had the best interests of his fellow Minnesotans in mind when governing,” the Republican Party of Minnesota said on Twitter.
