Perdue spent the weekend in Asheville with her husband Bob Eaves and delivered a speech on the economy Monday to a meeting of western Chambers of Commerce. She then stopped by Samaritan’s Purse in Boone, which provides international disaster relief and community development. Perdue met with Graham and about 300 of employees, said spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson.
"She spokes about how much the Graham family means to North Carolina and to her personally growing up," Pearson said.
Graham noted that Perdue is the first governor to visit his Boone facility.
