The DNC building was reportedly evacuated Tuesday afternoon for an unspecified reason.
According to Jennifer Bendery of The Huffington Post, the staffers and workers were told to go home and work from there for the rest of the day at around 4:30 p.m. ET. No details were given, but people were told to quickly leave the building.
The evacuation was reportedly due to a bomb threat. Law enforcement are investigating.
DNC communications director Xochitl Hinojosa:
"There was a bomb threat that came in this afternoon and the DNC took the necessary precautions and evacuated the building. We are currently working with law enforcement."
