Campaign resumes after pause for Colorado shooting

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The acrimonious presidential campaign is easing back into action after a weekend pause for the nation to absorb the shock of a horrific mass shooting at a Colorado movie theater.

The Obama campaign says it won’t advertise in Colorado for the rest of the week and the Romney campaign says its ads in the state are “down until further notice.”
