GOP Headquarters Firebombed.

It appears that a local GOP Headquarters in a staunch blue North Carolina community was firebombed.
“The firebombing of a local political headquarters in Orange County is clearly an attack on our democracy,” McCrory said in a statement. “Violence has no place in our society – but especially in our elections. … I will use every resource as governor to assist local authorities in this investigation.”
 I'll withhold judgement on the perpetrators until the investigation is complete, but I will note for the record that if this was a Black Lives Matter HQ, or a NAACP field office, the Justice Department would already have called this a hate crime and sent a team down to investigate.

But, it's just a Republican headquarters so we can't really expect the DOJ to care.  As of this writing, we have no comment from AG Lynch.
