Vandals damage office of GOP gubernatorial candidate

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Vandals damaged a Republican gubernatorial candidate’s Manhattan campaign office and state officials say they left behind a note claiming it was “just the beginning.”

Marc Molinaro says the damage includes smashed windows, a spray-painted door and glue put in the locks at the Metropolitan Republican Club, a longtime gathering spot for Republicans that hosts one of his campaign offices.

The damage was discovered on Friday.

Molinaro is the Dutchess County executive. He called on his general election opponent, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to denounce the vandalism.
