President Barack Obama has cancelled a visit to Central Florida planned for Friday in light of the deadly mass shooting in Colorado, where at least 12 people were killed and 50 others were injured.
The president had planned to address supporters at a grassroots event at Rollins College.
But the Obama campaign issued the following release 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.”
