He received photos from friends who happened to be driving by and called the fire department.
Jessica Dobrinsky, Leonhardt’s campaign manager, says they are disappointed that someone would do this.
“People obviously don’t have the same viewpoints, but we strive for civil discourse and to have a peaceful conversation of just differences of policy but we were very disappointed that the civil discourse was broken with this act of vandalism,” she said.
