Graham rally draws thousands
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.
