Graham rally draws thou­sands

The Daily Herald - - NORTHWEST EXTRA -

Evan­ge­list Franklin Graham held a prayer rally that drew thou­sands to the state Capi­tol in Wash­ing­ton state as part of his na­tional tour to urge Chris­tians to get in­volved in pol­i­tics. Graham, the son of Rev. Billy Graham, led the crowd in prayer sev­eral times dur­ing the hour-long rally Wed­nes­day. He said he had no faith in ei­ther the Demo­cratic or Repub­li­can party, and told those gath­ered that he wasn’t there to tell them who to vote for, but to make sure they vote for can­di­dates that stand for bib­li­cal val­ues. His stop in was part of his De­ci­sion Amer­ica tour. State of­fi­cials said that at least 5,000 peo­ple were in at­ten­dance, and that it was one of the largest ral­lies at the Capi­tol in re­cent years.
