Bill has also contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Republican Party and to conservative candidates from the Courthouse to the White House. He has been recognized for his willingness to give money to conservatives on behalf of conservative candidates and causes.

Bill spearheaded one of the largest grassroots movements in North Carolina history, which brought 75,000 North Carolinians forward to sign a petition and 1,000 people to a downtown rally in Raleigh. The Raleigh News & Observer wrote that Graham’s “crusade against the state gas tax has hit a nerve across North Carolina.” Governor Easley was forced to cap the gas tax and as a result North Carolina taxpayers will save $159 million in 2007.
