Obama scraps Florida campaign stop after Colorado shooting

President Barack Obama will address the tragic mass shooting in Colorado during remarks to supporters in Fort Myers, Florida, but has canceled the rest of his political swing in the Sunshine State, his reelection campaign announced Friday morning.

"President Obama will address the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado in remarks in Ft. Myers, Florida this morning. Then he will return to the White House. In light of the tragedy in Colorado, the event in Winter Park, Florida will be cancelled," his campaign press office announced.

Obama is scheduled to speak in Fort Myers at 11:20 a.m.
