A Traverse City-area Republican office was hit with a bomb threat Wednesday, marking the seventh attack on a GOP center in October.
The Detroit News reports “Police were called to the scene about 3 p.m. after a person ran into the office, threatened to blow it up, then fled the scene.”
“The threat comes days after the party headquarters in Lansing were tagged with graffiti,” the outlet adds.
Staffers were allowed to go back to work at 4:30 p.m., according to a spokesperson of the Michigan Republican Party.
This is attack number seven in only a month, this latest coming just two days after shots were fired at a GOP center in Florida, six days after vandals attacked an office in Iowa, and week after a boulder was thrown through Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) office window.
Recorded instances of violence, vandalism, and harassment exploded against the GOP in October, to over 40, which more than doubled the previous two months.
