Presidential race rolls through North Texas Prestonwood Baptist Church

PLANO – Evangelical voters got a lot of attention from Republican presidential candidates on Sunday afternoon when six major GOP contenders attended a forum at Prestonwood Baptist Church.
Organizers said more than 6,000 people attended the North Texas Presidential Forum to hear directly from former Gov. Jeb Bush; Dr. Ben Carson; Sen. Ted Cruz; Carly Fiorina; former Gov. Mike Huckabee; and former Sen. Rick Santorum.  Republican front-runner Donald Trump did not attend.
Dr. Jack Graham said his church invited Democrats, as well, but none accepted.
Evangelical voters in Texas have not had an opportunity like this in the 2016 election. Attracting so many major candidates suggests evangelicals are a bigger target for the Republican Party this cycle.
