    2008-08-22 08:12:26     Xinhua

A threatening letter and a suspicious white powder delivered to U.S. Republican presidential candidate John McCain's campaign office in Denver, Colorado, stirred an evacuation on Thursday, his campaign said.

The campaign told reporters that the office immediately reported to the local and federal police after staff received the letter in the afternoon.

All necessary precautious measures had been taken, including evacuation of the office, where dozens of people were at work, said Jeff Sadosky, the campaign's spokesman.

He also said that the unknown powder was contained in the envelope and the person who delivered the mail was untracked.

Denver is gearing up preparation for hosting the Democratic National Convention, from Aug. 25 to 28, where Barack Obama would be officially elected and announced as the party's presidential nominee.
