McCain adds Bush-Cheney fundraiser to PAC
From CNN Ticker Producer Alex Mooney

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican Sen. John McCain named a key fundraiser Monday from the Bush-Cheney campaign to join his Straight Talk America Political Action Committee in South Carolina.

Paula Harper Bethea is the latest Palmetto State Republican to join McCain's PAC, as the Arizona senator continues to add influential GOPers to his circle as he considers a presidential run in 2008.

"I am honored to have a distinguished businessperson of Paula's stature join our team in a leadership role," McCain said in a statement released by the PAC. "Paula has selflessly served the state of South Carolina in many capacities over the years."

The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce recently named Bethea, the director of external relations for the McNair Law Firm, and her husband, Bill, 2006 Business Leaders of the Year.
