The statement was sent out by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

The photoshopped image of Udall and Obama was taken from a picture of Obama and Udall at a Colorado hospital after the Aurora shooting. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) was also featured in the photo but AFP cut that part out. The hospital background was also removed in the modified image AFP used.

The statement by the vicstims' families was signed by: "Theresa Hoover, mother of AJ Boik, Sandy and Lonnie Phillips, parents of Jessica Ghawi,, Terry and Tom Sullivan, parents of Alex Sullivan and Caren [and] Tom Teves, parents of Alex Teves."

Wednesday afternoon AFP said it would remove the image from its ad, according to Denver's KDVR.
