DENVER – Presidential campaign ads, which were all pulled off the air in Colorado out of sensitivity following last Friday’s movie theater shooting, will start saturating the state’s airwaves again beginning Friday.

The conservative Super PAC “American Crossroads” and its spinoff “Crossroads GPS”, both founded by former Bush White House aide Karl Rove, will each go up with new ads in Colorado on Friday, FOX31 Denver has confirmed.

The Crossroads GPS ad, titled “Suffered”, focuses on the country’s sluggish economic recovery.

“America has suffered three years of crushing unemployment,” the narrator says at the beginning of the ad.

The ad from American Crossroads, titled “Smoke”, cites fact-checking reports on Obama ads that found one of them to be “blowing smoke”, as the narrator states.

“Why’s Obama attacking?” the narrator continues. “He’s added $4 billion in debt every singled day. Barack Obama can’t run on that record.”

New ads from both the Obama and Romney campaigns themselves will start running on Saturday, along with a new ad from the Republican National Committee.
