Violence against GOP in VA

U.S. authorities have arrested and charged a man with threatening to kill the No. 2 Republican in the House of Representatives, Eric Cantor, and his family, according to court documents filed on Monday.

Police are investigating vandalism at the Albemarle County Republican headquarters.
Someone threw bricks through the headquarter's windows, breaking three of them. The vandalism was discovered Friday morning.

Albemarle County Republican Chairwoman Rachel Shoenewald says people are angry on both sides of the political spectrum.

In November, someone glued the county GOP headquarters' doors shut on Election Day.
