Cindy McCain hurt on campaign trail

Republican John McCain's wife was treated Wednesday for a "minor sprain" after someone at a campaign event in Michigan shook her hand firmly.

A campaign spokeswoman said Cindy McCain left the West Bloomfield, Mich., campaign event Wednesday for X-rays at a local hospital after an enthusiastic supporter squeezed too much.

McCain's wife has had previous surgeries for carpal tunnel syndrome and the handshake exacerbated the condition.

Spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker said Cindy McCain will return to the campaign trail later Wednesday.
