A local Republican Party office in North Carolina was torched by a flammable device and someone spray-painted an anti-GOP slogan referring to "Nazi Republicans" on a nearby wall, authorities said Sunday. The interior of the office was damaged before the fire burned out, and no one was injured. The violent act in the key battleground state was condemned by public figures across the political spectrum. State GOP Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse called the fire "political terrorism." Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, said that the attack "is horrific and unacceptable." Republican nominee Donald Trump blamed the act on Democrats and encouraged local Republicans. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is working with local investigators.

Silicon Valley heavyweight Peter Thiel will give $1.25 million as his first donation in support of Trump's campaign after endorsing the presidential candidate earlier this year, a spokesman for the investor said on Sunday. So far, the co-founder of PayPal and early investor in Facebook Inc. who sits on that company's board of directors has been the most prominent supporter of Trump from the country's technology hub.
