LINCOLN, Neb. — The son of the Rev. Billy Graham is urging Nebraska Christians to run for public office and support candidates who follow biblical principles.

Franklin Graham spoke to a crowd of thousands Wednesday on the Capitol’s front steps, including Lt. Gov. Mike Foley and numerous state senators.

Nebraska was the 24th stop on the Decision America Tour, a series of prayer rallies scheduled in all 50 states.

Franklin Graham says Christian voters should participate in this year’s election even if they have to vote for “the lesser of two evils,” and should look closely at local races. He says Christians need to insert God back into politics and fight against secularism in all levels of government.
