President Obama and presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney — as well as their leading Super PAC supporters — have temporarily yanked their ads in the state, according to multiple press reports. Nobody’s saying how long the black out will last. Colorado is considered a battleground state, so cash has been pouring in to influence voters. Bill Burton of Priorities USA Action, a Super PAC that supports Obama, says that “Our prayers are with the victims of this horrible tragedy.” And Steven Law of American Crossroads, a similar organization that favors Romney, says: “We pause to honor and pray for those whose lives have been tragically cut short, as well as those who must bear this terrible loss.”
