Orange County Republican Party headquarters in the state of North Carolina was firebombed on Saturday night. A bottle of flammable liquid was thrown through a front window of the OC GOP headquarters in Hillsborough, North Carolina.

In addition, it was vandalized with a swastika and “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else,” reported by the Charlotte Observer.   No one was injured.

Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the NC GOP, issued this statement via the state party:

Whether you are Republican, Democrat, or Independent, all Americans should be outraged by this hate-filled and violent attack against our democracy. Whether the bomb was meant to kill, destroy property, or intimidate voters, everyone in this country should be free to express their political viewpoints without fear for their own safety. We will be requesting additional security at all Republican Party offices and events between now and Election Day to ensure the safety of our activists, volunteers, and supporters.

Both presidential candidates responded to the attacks.

 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the NC GOP and the community.  Differing opinions should never result in vandalizing and/or violence.
