Event in Hunts Point
Cindy McCain, wife of Republican presidential
John McCain, raised money for the campaign Wednesday in
Seattle's wealthy suburbs.
McCain spokesman Rick Gorka had initially said the fundraiser
had been suspended when the Arizona Senator halted the rest of his
campaign to focus on the financial crisis.
But the $1,000-a-plate actually took place at a private home
before the announcement, said Gorka, who blamed the misstatement on
confusion among campaign aides. Cindy McCain did attend before
departing to Washington D.C., he said.
The event was held at a private home in Hunts Point, in
Seattle's eastern suburbs. Cindy McCain replaced the original
headliner, Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
