An Indiana Republican Party office was vandalized last week after someone tossed two bricks through the window, officials said Monday. This act happened before the national news of another office being firebombed in North Carolina showing a clear progression in the severity of the attacks.
Along with the shattered glass at the Delaware County office, campaign signs for the presidential nominees, Donald Trump and Rep. Todd Young, were hanging in the window after landscaping bricks were tossed through the glass, officials said in a Facebook post.
Officials state in the Facebook post that it would cost about $1,200 to replace the window and those interested in helping out with the cost could donate online.
According to Fox 59, Delaware County Sheriff Ray Dudley said that there have been numerous reports of campaign signs being stolen from the yards around Yorktown and Mount Pleasant Township.

Dudley added that the reports were being taken seriously and that removing signs from homeowners’ yards could call for prosecution under the Indiana criminal code.
The news of the Delaware County Republican office being trashed comes days after a Republican headquarters in North Carolina was firebombed, but this event appears to have happened first.
