Cindy McCain Departs For Georgia

During a fundraiser in Sacramento, California, John McCain told the crowd that his wife Cindy McCain is on her way to war-torn Georgia, where she will meet with officials, including Georgian President Mikheil Sakaasvili. Cindy McCain is a philanthropist and has often not appeared by her husband’s side during many campaign stops because she was visiting places like Kosovo in March, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia in June and Rwanda in July. As reported by TIME, Cindy McCain serves on the boards of multiple organizations and has been trying to get to Georgia since the Russia-Georgia war started but only recently was able to work out the logistics of the trip.
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.
