Campaign Suspension Tick-Tock

NPR's David Greene outlines McCain's campaign suspension (though as Dem strategist Jonathan Prince pointed out to Ben Smith today, that might not have been the most accurate choice of words) with a helpful timeline of how the decision was reached and what McCain has been up to instead. One interesting nugget from today:

1:00 p.m.: The McCain campaign plans to suspend all advertising and fundraising, in addition to campaign activities. NPR's Peter Overby points out that McCain does not need to do any fundraising, since he took $84 million in public financing. The McCain campaign is also receiving money from the Republican National Committee, but the RNC has not yet said if it will also stop raising money.
