The campaigns for the two presidential candidates said Friday they were asking television stations to discontinue airing some political advertisements following a deadly shooting in Colorado.
Presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney's campaign will pull all television ads in Colorado, the candidate's spokeswoman Andrea Saul said.
President Barack Obama's traveling campaign press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One the president's campaign would pull "contrast advertising."
"We have asked affiliates to pull down our contrast advertising for the time being. It takes time for stations to be able to do this, but we are making every effort," Psaki said.
The campaign explained they, like Romney's team, would pull ads only in Colorado.
An advertisement slamming Romney for reports of offshore accounts is currently in heavy rotation from Obama's campaign.
On Friday Romney's campaign released an ad hitting Obama for remarks he made regarding small business last week in Virginia.
American Crossroads, a conservative super PAC, also said Friday it would suspend airing ads in Colorado. The group announced Thursday it was spending more than $15 million to air an ad criticizing Obama's economic record and deflecting attacks on Romney's record as a businessman.
It's Democratic-leaning counterpart, Priorities USA, said in a tweet that it would suspend its ad buy in Colorado as well.
