Cindy in a new light: Mrs. John McCain surprised NOH8 organizers with her pledge of support for their marriage-equality cause.
As her daughter Meghan did before her, Cindy McCain, registered Republican and wife of Sen. John McCain, has lent her well-known visage to the NOH8 campaign that began after the passage of California’s Proposition 8 in November 2008. The campaign’s organizers expressed surprise that Cindy was willing to do so and gave her props for her bid to “show people that party doesn’t matter.” —KA
The McCains are one of the most well-known Republican families in recent history, and for Mrs. McCain to have reached out to us to offer her support truly means a lot. Although we had worked with Meghan McCain before and were aware of her own position, we’d never really thought the cause might be something her mother would get behind. We have a huge amount of respect for both of these women for being brave enough to make it known they support equal marriage rights for all Americans.
