Kerry Picket Political Reporter

A local Virginia Republican County committee received profane bomb threat Monday morning, Loudoun County GOP Chairman Will Estrada confirmed to The Loudon Times-Mirror.

According to Estrada, the threat was made over email and telephone and while local law enforcement recommended that the message not be released, he did describe what was said to him on the phone.

“But I can tell you that when the caller called, the very first words he told me were, ‘You Nazi [expletive] Republicans, a bomb with your name on it is coming very soon and you won’t see Election Day,'” Estrada said.

Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office officials are investigating the incident and already combed through the local Republican office in Sterling, The Loudon Times-Mirror noted, and nothing suspicious was discovered.
