Ed Cox (@chairmanedcox) (@NewYorkGOP), chairman of the New York Republican State Committee, interviewed on the vandalizing of the New York GOP headquarters by two hooded men who methodically spray-painted an “A” on the façade (for Antifa?) and doors, put gooey stuff on the entry system to gum it up, then threw bricks at our window and broke the glass, which had our campaign things in the window. Then they fled down the street.
The Metropolitan Republican Club is historic, going back to Teddy Roosevelt; left a threatening note, "Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize." Occurred around 2:30 AM; police arrived. Recall that Gov Cuomo said that people “who don’t agree with us are not welcome in New York State.” Mrs Clinton said several days ago that it's not possible to be civil any more; the former Attorney-General Eric Holder said, “When they go low, we kick them.” The violent activists were trained and professional.
