    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump issued two contrasting responses to the vandalizing and apparent firebombing of a Republican Party headquarters in North Carolina on Sunday.

No one was hurt in the incident, and police are now investigating. Clinton condemned the incident on Twitter Sunday evening. "The attack on the Orange County HQ @NCGOP office is horrific and unacceptable," she said. "Very grateful that everyone is safe." Meanwhile, Trump was...

Upon questioning, the man reported that he was not working alone....
