(Newser) – The $52 billion takeover of Anheuser-Busch means Cindy McCain's stock in the brewing giant is worth between $2.8 million and $5.6 million, Reuters calculates. Though the presidential campaign of her husband, Republican John McCain, didn't say how many shares Cindy owns, it appears she and her dependents have between 40,000 and 80,000 shares—for which InBev's bid offers $70 apiece.
