CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Democrats attending their national convention in North Carolina have been driving out of Charlotte's airport directly onto the Billy Graham Parkway.
Tom Phillips, vice president of the Billy Graham Library, says the museum is seeing an increase in visits from Democrats from around the country this week.
The 93-year-old evangelist grew up a few miles from the library site, but now lives near Asheville, N.C.
Phillips notes that Graham has met and prayed with 12 presidents, starting with Harry Truman more than 60 years ago. He says many of those prayers were during times of crisis, making Graham the presidents' pastor in many ways.
More than 550,000 visitors have been through the Billy Graham Library since it opened in 2007.
