Presidential contenders Barack Obama and John McCain plan to pull ads on Sept. 11 that criticize each other.
The campaigns made their decision known on the same
day that a group backing community service
called on the candidates to refrain from partisan campaigning.
McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said McCain did not plan to advertise at all on the anniversary saying 9-11 is not a day for politics.
The Obama campaign said it plans to stop airing anti-McCain commercials on Sept. 11.
