With bipartisan support, firebombed Orange County GOP HQ re-opens

The GOP headquarters in Orange County, which was firebombed last month, has re-opened with financial support from both Republicans and Democrats.

Despite political differences, Democrats rallied to raise money to re-open the offices last month.

N.C. GOP Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse told the News & Observer that he doesn’t believe the act of political terrorism is representative of the Democratic party.

“We don’t believe this represents the other side, but the rhetoric has been tough in this election, and we all need to remember this is an election on issues between our candidates,” Woodhouse said.

That’s a significant softening of the position taken by GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“Animals representing Hillary Clinton and Dems in North Carolina just firebombed our office in Orange County because we are winning,” Trump posted to Twitter shortly after the bombing.

The state Republican party has pledged to match the reward already being offered for information about the bombing, which is still being investigated. The total reward is now $10,000.
