Group: Obama, McCain in New York on Sept. 11

Barack Obama and John McCain are set to appear at a community service forum in New York City on Sept. 11.
The announcement comes as a service group is asking the presumptive presidential nominees not to campaign on the anniversary of the 2001 terror attacks.
McCain's campaign said last month the Republican planned to attend the forum, which will launch a pro-volunteering coalition called ServiceNation. Obama's campaign said Thursday the Democrat planned to participate.
An organization called MyGoodDeed.org has asked the candidates to spend Sept. 11 volunteering instead of campaigning. The campaigns say they'll honor the anniversary by pulling ads criticizing each other.
