Crowds gather to see Franklin Graham’s ‘Decision America Tour’

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A huge crowd gathered outside the Ohio Statehouse Thursday to take part in a prayer rally being held by Franklin Graham.

The event was part of the American Christian evangelist’s “Decision America Tour” he announced on his Facebook page back in December of 2015.

The tour includes stops at the state capitol in every state so he can tell people to vote with their morals.

“I want to challenge Christians to pray, to get out and vote for candidates who support biblical values, and to get involved by running for office at all levels—school board, city council, mayor, state representative, and more,” Graham said in a statement. “This could be the most important election in our nation’s history. America has got some decisions to make—decisions that will affect our children and our grandchildren!”

Graham is not telling candidates to vote for a specific candidate, but Donald Trump currently has overwhelming support from Americans who identify themselves as evangelicals.
