Mitt Romney meets with Rev. Billy Graham

MONTREAT, N.C. - The Rev. Billy Graham has told Mitt Romney he'll do all he can to help the GOP nominee win the presidency.
  
Romney visited Graham at the 93-year-old evangelist's home in North Carolina Thursday and said prayer is what he needs most.
  
A Romney adviser says the Romney and Graham's son, the Rev. Franklin Graham, have been discussing how the younger Graham will encourage churches to boost voter turnout.
  
Franklin Graham, who attended today's meeting, said in February that most Christians "would not recognize Mormonism," Romney's faith. He apologized for refusing, in the same interview, to say whether he believed President Barack Obama is a Christian.
  
Romney later spoke at a rally in Asheville, where former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said he was a Southern Baptist urging Americans to vote for a Mormon from Massachusetts.
