Evangelist Billy Graham commended Mitt Romney for his values and moral convictions after meeting with the GOP presidential candidate at his North Carolina home on Thursday.
“What impresses me even more than Governor Romney’s successful career are his values and strong moral convictions,” Graham said in a statement. “I appreciate his faithful commitment to his impressive family, particularly his wife Ann of 43 years and his five married sons.”
Graham, 93, said he was friends with Romney’s late father, former Michigan Governor George Romney, and has followed the younger Romney’s career.
The beloved evangelist, who has preached the Gospel to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history, prayed with Romney, a Mormon.
“It was a privilege to pray with Governor Romney – for his family and our country,” he stated.
