The ATF is investigating the fire-bombing of a local Republican Party office in North Carolina after someone spray-painted anti-GOP rhetoric on a nearby wall early Sunday morning.
Investigators said a molotov cocktail was tossed through a window of the Orange County Republican Party headquarters overnight, causing a fire that damaged the interior of the building before burning out, the Associated Press reports.
Campaign signs, a sofa and the walls were burned.
On an adjacent building was graffiti that read, “Nazi Republicans leave town or else.”
“They are working around the clock. It is a miracle that nobody was killed,” state GOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse said in an interview, calling the fire “political terrorism.”
Hillary Clinton responded on Twitter that the firebombing “is horrific and unacceptable. Very grateful that everyone is safe.”
Donald Trump tweeted, “Animals representing Hillary Clinton and Dems in North Carolina just firebombed our office in Orange County because we are winning.”
