Billy Graham to Mitt Romney: ‘I’ll do all I can to help you’

Our take: Evangelical minister Bill Graham has offered his support for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Mitt Romney asked the Rev. Billy Graham for his prayers Thursday and the ailing evangelist came through by praying with the Republican presidential candidate and offering his support.

The 30-minute meeting between the world-renowned Christian leader and Romney could provide the former governor with a major boost among evangelical Christians skeptical of supporting the first Mormon nominated for president.
