Rev. Graham campaigns for Christian candidates in Berkeley

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Rev. Franklin Graham is holding a political rally in Berkeley, an unlikely spot to woo evangelical Christian voters.

Graham says he means no mischief with his campaign-like rally Friday night where he will urge voters to support politically conservative candidates in one of the most liberal cities in the country.

It’s one of 10 California cities Graham will visit in the run up to the June 5 election.

The 65-year-old preacher is the son of the Rev. Billy Graham, the famed spiritual adviser to 16 presidents who died in March. Unlike his father, the son is taking on a more political role that aims generally to get more evangelical Christian candidates elected to office.

His last stop is in Redding on election day.
