    Workers at the Orange County GOP office set up a makeshift operation with folding tables on Monday, Oct. 17, 2016 in Hillsborough, N.C.

    North Carolina is offering a reward of $5,000 for information that can help authorities find and arrest whoever is responsible for firebombing a local Republican Party headquarters last weekend, NBC News reported.

    Gov. Pat McCrory, a Republican, called it an “assault on democracy.” Republican presidential candidate Mike Pence visited the site Tuesday, calling the attack an “act of terrorism.”

    Authorities said a bottle containing a flammable substance was thrown through the front window at the offices. Swastikas were also painted on a nearby wall, threatening “Nazi Republicans” to leave town “or else.”

    Both Republicans and Democrats condemned the attack, with Democrats creating a GoFundMe page to help raise money to reopen the office. The group said it has raised about $13,000 so far.
