SALISBURY, Md.-  One of Donald Trump's campaign headquarters was vandalized with spray paint sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning in Salisbury..

Most of the damage has since been removed according to Salisbury Mayor Jake Day.  Day says police contacted him early Saturday morning after spray painted messages were written on the front windows of the building around 1:00 am.  Crude language and x-marks were also written through campaigns signs of Republican Senate Candidate Kathy Szeglia.

Mayor Day says people should have a right to free speech, but without the input of intimidation and hate speech.

"The city of Salisbury is going to strongly and vigorously defend people's first amendment rights, of people's desire to support any candidate they want and for any business and any tenant, whether it's a political campaign or a business to be present without the threat or fear of intimidation," said Day.

Police are reviewing surveillance footage to identify the suspects of Friday night's vandalism, which remains under investigation.
