ORANGE COUNTY, NC (AP) – Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence is condemning the firebombing of a local Republican office in North Carolina as “an act of political terrorism” and “an attack on the American political system.”
The Indiana governor on Tuesday toured the charred interior of the Orange County GOP office on his way to two rallies elsewhere in the state.
He praised Republican volunteers Hillsborough, North Carolina, for their “courage and resilience.”
Pence noted political figures across the spectrum have condemned the act committed over the weekend. But he complained that national media have paid little attention. He speculated that a similar attack on a Democratic office would get much wider coverage.
No one was hurt, and police are still investigating.
