Cindy McCain En Route to Georgia « The Washington Independent
At a fund-raiser in Sacramento, Sen. John McCain just told attendees that his wife, Cindy, is en route to the war-torn country of Georgia. No word yet on what her plans are. Last week, McCain dispatched his friends, surrogates and fellow U.S. Senate Armed Service Committee members Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) to Eastern Europe and the Caucasus.
McCain is traveling with the U.N.’s World Food Program, whose work she monitored in Southeast Asia and Africa this spring and summer. McCain planned to meet with Georgian President Mikheil Sakaasvili, and to visit with wounded Georgian soldiers. She would also visit representatives of the HALO Trust, which works to remove landmines and on whose board she serves.
