    From Orange County Democratic Party Chair Matt Hughes:

    I got a phone call Sunday morning that the Orange County GOP headquarters was essentially firebombed and graffiti spray painted across the building referring to Republican Nazis needing to leave town “or else." This sort of behavior is completely unacceptable, criminal, and goes against the very principles of our democracy and civil discourse.

    Sunday afternoon I spoke with Daniel Ashley, the Orange County GOP chair. They are still assessing the damage and working with law enforcement to identify a perpetrator. I let Mr. Ashley know the the local Democrats are willing to help in anyway possible during their recovery and that our thoughts are with them.

    Below is the statement released by the NCDP and our chair Patsy Keever.

    NCDP Statement on the Attack on Republican County Party Headquarters: The North Carolina Democratic Party strongly condemns this attack. Violence has no place in our political system. We hope the perpetrators of this attack are brought to swift justice, and we are thankful that no one was hurt. Our deepest sympathies are with everyone at the North Carolina Republican Party. – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairwoman Patsy Keever Democratically yours, Matt Hughes, Chair Orange County Democratic Party
