GOP firebombing probed

(NBC News) Federal and state investigators in Orange County, North Carolina are trying to figure out who firebombed a Republican Party campaign office there over the weekend.

The damage at the Hillsborough office is extensive: A burned couch and chair, singed walls and campaign signs.

"This is a horrific, horrific act of political terrorism," says North Carolina GOP Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse.

A nearby business owner discovered the damage Sunday morning.

No one was there when the device crashed through the window. Painted on a nearby wall was a message, "nazi republicans, leave town or else."

Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump blamed his opponent, tweeting:

"Animals representing Hillary Clinton and Dems in North Carolina just firebombed our office in Orange County because we are winning…

Clinton tweeted her own response, stating:

"The attack on the Orange County HG @NCGOP office is horrific and unacceptable Very grateful that everyone is safe."

A group of Democrats has quickly raised more than $10,000 online to help reopen the office.
