Dems Fundraise for Firebombed GOP Office
Various Democrats started a GoFundMe campaign to help the GOP office in North Carolina that was firebombed over the weekend.
“As Democrats, we are starting this campaign to enable the Orange County, North Carolina Republican office to reopen as soon as possible,” the page says.
Thank you for your thoughts & prayers, Sec. @HillaryClinton.

In contrast, Donald Trump blamed Clinton and her supporters for the attack.
Animals representing Hillary Clinton and Dems in North Carolina just firebombed our office in Orange County because we are winning @NCGOP

The Hill reports:
Police said Sunday that a bottle of flammable liquid was thrown into the building housing the county’s GOP headquarters in Hillsborough.
“The office itself is a total loss,” said the head of the state Republican Party, Dallas Woodhouse. “The only thing important to us is that nobody was killed, and they very well could have been.”
“Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” was also written on the side of a nearby building.
Trump took a harsher tone and pointed fingers, though police have not released any information about suspects or motive yet.
