The Clinton Foundation issued a statement from former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, calling Graham "one of the most important religious leaders in American history" and highlighting his contributions to the cause of civil rights. 

"I will never forget the first time I saw him, 60 years ago in Little Rock, during the school integration struggle. He filled a football stadium with a fully integrated audience, reminding them that we all come before God as equals, both in our imperfection and our absolute claim to amazing grace," Bill Clinton reflected of his personal experiences.

"Later as Governor, in the White House, and afterward, I saw him live that faith fully in the constant kindness, encouragement, and counsel he extended to Hillary and me," he continued.

"Billy has finished his long good race, leaving our world a better place and claiming his place in glory."
