Police responded to a reported break-in at a Republican congressional candidate's campaign headquarters in San Diego on Wednesday.

NBC 7 San Diego reports that officers visited former San Diego City Councilman Carl DeMaio’s office after a caller reported that computer screens had been damaged and cords had been cut. The report said it was unclear whether anything was taken from the headquarters. No information on a suspect or motive has been released.

DeMaio is challenging Rep. Scott Peters (D-Calif.) in the state's 52nd District in a race that is considered one of the country's closest. He was named a "young gun" up-and-coming GOP candidate by the National Republican Congressional Committee.

The Republican, who is openly gay, ran for mayor of San Diego in 2012.
