James Harding at the Financial Times reports:

“John Kerry’s election team is to suspend advertising during August, opening itself to what it expects will be a barrage of attacks from the Bush-Cheney campaign.

After a debate with his senior advisers, Mr Kerry has opted to ‘go dark’ in the weeks after the Democratic National Convention to conserve limited federal funds for the weeks immediately before the November 2 election.”

Only one problem with that plan…. Kerry’s numbers are already falling.
