Bongino workers' cars vandalized
Two cars belonging to campaign workers for GOP Senate candidate Dan Bongino were vandalized Friday evening as the former Secret Service agent and his volunteers attended the Maryland Republican Convention in Annapolis, the campaign said Saturday.
Tires were slashed on two vehicles belonging to the workers, a campaign spokeswoman said. The cars were not parked near each and no other vehicles at the convention had damage, she said. The campaign filed a report with Anne Arundel County Police.
In a statement, Bongino spokeswoman Hillary Pennington blamed the campaign's "opponents" for "resorting to thug tactics in an effort to suppress our message of real change." The statement did not say who, precisely, the campaign believes is behind the incident.
Bongino is seeking the Republican nomination to run against Democratic incumbent Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin in 2012.
