The Republican party of North Carolina tweeted images of a field office in the central part of the state that was allegedly firebombed today. In a statement, Gov. Pat McCrory of North Carolina said, “The firebombing of a local political headquarters in Orange County is clearly an attack on our democracy. Violence has no place in our society - but especially in our elections. Fortunately no one was injured; however, I will use every resource as governor to assist local authorities in this investigation.”
