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

DENVER - Cindy McCain's half sister says she will not vote for Republican John McCain and plans to cast her ballot for his Democratic rival, Barack Obama.

"I have a different political standpoint," Kathleen Hensley Portalski said in an interview with "Us Weekly," published online Thursday. "I'm voting for Obama."

Portalski said Obama's proposals are "more positive and I'm not a big war believer."

Cindy McCain and Portalski have the same father, James Hensley. He founded Hensley & Company, the Phoenix area 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.
