RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina-based evangelist Franklin Graham has wrapped up his 50-state tour calling on Christians to pray for the country and to vote this fall with a rally in his home state.

Thousands attended the last stop on Graham’s “Decision America” tour held midday Thursday outside the old Capitol building in downtown Raleigh.

The Rev. Billy Graham’s oldest son has been traveling to state capitals to preach the Christian faith while urging its believers to stand for “biblical principles” and vote when possible for candidates who hold similar principles.

Graham is not endorsing any candidates but told attendees Thursday the most important issue in the presidential race is the next president’s top picks for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Graham lives in Boone and is CEO of the Samaritan’s Purse relief organization.
