Chairman: Hundreds of Romney-Ryan signs vandalized in Greensboro
Romney-Ryan signs vandalized
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Hundreds of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan supporters woke up to their campaign signs vandalized with red spray paint on Thursday.
Guilford County Republican Party Chairman Al Bouldin says he’s received several calls and complaints of vandalized signs mostly in the Irving Park area.
“Anybody that has ever run for political office they will tell you, people will steal your signs, maybe vandalize them, but never on this large of a scale,” Bouldin said.
While there is no official count of the number of signs that have been vandalized, Bouldin estimates over a hundred signs have been defaced.
Dozens of supporters have visited the Guilford County GOP office to replace their damaged signs that cost between $5 to $10.
Greensboro police say they have received only one report of a campaign sign being vandalized near Kimberly Drive.
