Former Vice President Walter F. Mondale said Friday that he will not enter the 1990 race for a U.S. Senate seat in Minnesota and will not seek elective office in the future. "I believe it's time for other candidates to step forward," said Mondale, a former senator who was the Democratic Party's presidential nominee in 1984. "It was a very difficult choice for us." Mondale, 61, said he has enjoyed his life out of political office and has seen too many colleagues stay in the Senate for too long.

A letter in which the late Malcolm Forbes offers jokingly to vote on behalf of the dead for Sen. Rudy Boschwitz (R-Minn.) startled the senator's staffers when it arrived in Boschwitz's office last week. The letter was dated Feb. 14 but did not arrive in the senator's office until Feb. 26, three days after Forbes died in his sleep at age 70. Forbes apparently wrote the letter to say he would not be able to appear at a fund-raiser, an aide said.
