Mitt Romney Makes Statement On Aurora, Colorado Shootings

Posted: Updated:

BOW, N.H. — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says Friday is a time to grieve and remember the lives lost in the Colorado shootings.

He told supporters at a previously scheduled campaign stop in New Hampshire that justice will come another day for the person responsible. He called for Americans to focus on loving each other and those affected by what he said were "a few moments of evil" near Denver.

Romney is suspending political activity for the day. He has taken down campaign ads running in Colorado, postponed several media interviews and canceled a campaign trip his wife, Ann, was scheduled to make to Michigan.

Speaking in Florida earlier Friday, President Barack Obama called for reflection and said there would be other days for politics.
