WASHINGTON, May 15 (UPI) -- Cindy McCain, wife of the presumptive GOP nominee for president, has sold at least $2 million in funds from Sudanese investments, a campaign spokesman says.

The mutual funds are American Funds Europacific Growth and American Funds Capital World Growth and Income. Both have investments in companies with business in Sudan, to the Sudan Divestment Task Force, an advocacy organization told The New York Times.

"As soon as she was made aware, she sold it," campaign spokesman Brian Rogers said. "Senator and Mrs. McCain are committed to doing everything possible to end the genocide in Darfur."
