Cindy McCain's half sister: "I'm voting for Obama"

Posted: Updated:

DENVER -- Cindy McCain's half sister says she's voting for Barack Obama for president, not John McCain.

Kathleen Hensley Portalski told "Us Weekly" -- published online today -- that Obama's proposals are "more positive" and that she is not "a big war believer."

Cindy McCain and Portalski have the same father, James Hensley. He founded Hensley and Company, a Phoenix Anheuser-Busch distributor.

Cindy McCain is heiress to her father's stake in the company.

E-mails and a phone message left with John McCain's presidential campaign were not immediately returned.
