A black congressional candidate was shocked to find that someone spray painted one of her campaign signs in Jacksonville so her face would appear white, according to WJXT4.
Glo Smith, who is running to represent Florida's 5th congressional district, posted a photo of the vandalism to her Twitter on Sunday after her husband found the sign last week.
Smith told the TV station that she doesn't understand why someone would whitewash her sign, but she's leaving the matter up to law enforcement.
Florida's 5th congressional district covers parts of the state stretching from Jacksonville to Orlando and encompasses several traditionally black neighborhoods.
Smith will face off against fellow republican Thuy Lowe at the GOP primary election on Aug. 26 and the winner of that race will face Rep. Corinne Brown on Nov. 4.
