Watch the McCains discuss the injury at a press conference Wednesday.
(CNN) - Cindy McCain visited a Michigan hospital after a campaign event Wednesday, complaining of pain in her hand.
"At some point during the rope line an enthusiastic supporter shook Mrs. McCain’s hand and exacerbated an existing carpal tunnel condition,” said spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker. “Out of an abundance of caution, she decided to leave the event and visit the local hospital for x-rays where she was treated for a minor sprain."
UPDATE: The campaign reports that Cindy McCain will return to active campaigning on Thursday.
Cindy McCain, who has a brace on her right arm, told reporters she was "fine." Her husband said Wednesday afternoon that someone shook her hand "too vigorously."
I hope that she doesn't start popping pills from her charity again.
You got to watch it when shaking hands with the riff-raff...
She just feels like she is too good to shake peoples hands. So this is an excuse for her to avoid shaking Amerticans hands.
Oh poor little barbie doll never worked a day in her life,Maybe she ran out of pills mccain latley with all the foaming out of his mouth probably has caused barbie to rely more heavily on pills!!!!
Don't like her, but very glad it wasn't serious.
Wow! Guess that was one hell of a handshake! I hope she gets better soon.
This is the funniest thing I have seen all day. Thanks CNN.
And this is freakin news. Who the hell cares!!!!!!! The barbie doll has no fat on her wrists.
why in the world is this news?
she is worthless on the political circuit. this is not news.
The average American couldn't afford an xray for this crap.
does an ELITIST we can beleive in
Here come the pain killer addiction again.
slow news day, huh.........
Poor little Cindy. She got a BOBO. McSames ex-wife had to raise his three kids by herself while being badly hurt but Cindy (silver spoon) had to be rushed to the hospital from shaking hands. WEAK just like the man named John McSame the enemy collaborator.
You Libs can thank CNN for a freebie. Have at it you pathetic trolls!
Shes just fine now, thank goodness,John wouldnt be able to speak without her nearby throwing her voice and pulling his strings.
Fragile blue blooded $40 million dollar hands can't handle a handshake? I'm just sayin'.
THIS is breaking news??????
Sorry to hear that. I'm definitely an Obama fan, but I can relate to someone shaking your hand as if they are trying to take it off. No more handshaking Mrs. McCain.
I'm sure the Obama lemmings will have something tasteless to say about this.
Will this be Cindy's excuse to start abusing prescription medication again?
Lock your medicine cabinets folks!
This is a low day for the news media. A hand sprain? I does show that the McCains are pretty old. If you can't even shake hands without getting injured, how are you going to do dodging bullets in Bosnia?
"John McCain's wife was hospitalized with a minor hand sprain after shaking hands with supporters, the senator’s campaign says."
This is NEWS-FLASH on CNN.
What the ................
Why is this news? Please some one explain this to me?
I'm a Democrat, but I hope Cindy is okay.
Come November, she and her husband will have plenty of time to enjoy their millions of dollars, nine homes and 500 dollar shoes.
