The New Hampshire Republican Party headquarters was vandalized Wednesday night. The building’s windows were broken and its walls were sprayed with graffiti.
According to the Concord Police, a call came in Thursday morning at 9:07 a.m., directing them to the GOP Party headquarters. They found the building had been vandalized.
Police say the vandals used rocks to break windows. They also sprayed the word “Nazis” on the building and sprayed additional graffiti around the windows.
Concord Police are actively investigating the incident, but they are asking the public for leads.
“We’re certainly looking for any help we could get from the public to get an idea of who might have done this,” Lt. Sean Ford said.
The New Hampshire Democratic Party was asked for a comment and chairman Ray Buckley condemned the act.
“Vandalism is unacceptable, it’s inexcusable and it’s wrong,” Buckley said. “The New Hampshire Democratic Party wholly condemns this criminal action and hopes the perpetrator is held accountable. There is no place for that in our politics.”

Some local reports are pointing to the violent clash in Charlottesville over the weekend as the reason for the vandalism. Fringe white supremacist groups that attended the event are being linked to the Republican Party.
A Confederate statue was vandalized on Monday when a group of protesters in Durham, North Carolina, tied a rope to it and pulled it down, citing their anger over the violence at the rally in Charlottesville. When some members of the mob were arrested, they chanted, “No Trump, no KKK. No fascist USA.”
