#63: Campaigning During a Campaign Suspension

On September 24th, McCain famously suspended his campaign to focus on the economy. But, being the Maverick that he is, he wasn't about to stop running TV ads. From the Wisconsin Advertising Project:

"The McCain campaign cut back on its television advertising in the days following McCain's announcement that he was suspending his campaign to focus on the economy. On September 24, his campaign aired 2,447 ads and on Sept. 25, it aired 1,304 ads. From September 26-28, McCain aired 302, 670, and 852 ads respectively. On September 29, the campaign returned to previous advertising levels, airing 2,687 ads."
