By Associated Press

POSTED:


BOW, N.H. >> Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says today 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.

“We’ll all spend a little less time thinking about the worries of our day and more time wondering about how to help those who are in need of compassion most,” he said in brief remarks to a subdued audience. “The answer is that we can come together. We will show our fellow citizens the good heart of the America we know and love."

Romney said he joined the president and first lady in extending condolences “for those whose lives were shattered in a few moments, a few moments of evil in Colorado.

Both President Obama and Romney suspended political activity for the day. 

Obama was returning to Washington. Romney canceled some media interviews. And both candidates moved to pull ads against each other airing in Colorado.
