Overnight in North Carolina, a bottle containing flammable material was hurled through a window in the Orange County GOP office, igniting the building in flames, according to the Hillsborough Police Department. In addition, an adjacent building was left spray-painted with the message, “Nazi Republicans, leave town or else,” along with a swastika.
WFMY news contacted North Carolina GOP Executive Director, Dallas Woodhouse, who stated, “Whether you are Republican, Democrat, or Independent, all Americans should be outraged by this hate-filled and violent attack against our democracy.”
Among the burned interior and shattered glass remain yard signs of various GOP candidates who face election on November 8th. As of now, the individual or group responsible for this attack is unknown. Woodhouse remarks, “Whether the bomb was meant to kill, destroy property, or intimidate voters, everyone in this country should be free to express their political views without fear for their own safety.” He plans to increase security for the office as well as their political events as a precaution to instill the safety of all those volunteering and working for the North Carolina GOP.
