Delaware State Police on Monday told TheBlaze that "during a Republican Political Rally" Sunday outside the Crossroads Restaurant in Wilmington, three males between the ages of 20 and 25 drove by and threw eggs at the crowd standing near the roadway.
Police said three children and three adults were struck, no injuries were reported, and no arrests have been made amid the active investigation.
Lauren Witzke, a Republican candidate from Delaware for U. S. Senate, hosted the event supporting President Donald Trump. Witzke posted a video on her Twitter page that she said showed the aftermath, including a little girl with eggshells in her hair and a little boy with egg on his shirt.
"I wanted to show you what these hateful liberals did to a little child," Witzke said in the clip as the video camera focused on top of the girl's head. "They drove by, and they threw eggs at little children."
Witzke added that the rally participants were waiting for police and had the license plate of the egg-throwers' vehicle.
"This is a hate crime right here," she said, adding that "little children [are] getting egged" "just for being conservative."
Witzke also said, "This is what the Democrat Party represents, this is what the Democrat party allows" and that "we have to build something better for our children and their future, because the radical left will throw eggs at little children, the radical left will throw profanities at little children."
Of course a number of folks were upset at the alleged egging incident, but others had different points of view:

I’m pro Trump, but using that poor wee girl to make a point, is unacceptable. Instead of standing over her and sticking a phone in her face. She should have been held and comforted. Eggs hurt when you’re hit by one. And clearly her eye was bothering her. Shame on you.— Wendy (@Miss_Swendy) September 14, 2020
Eggs are better than pepper spray.— regina nadeau (@reginanadeau198) September 14, 2020
If this were the other way around, there would be a mic in every Conservative congressman's face asking whether or not they denounced it. NO Democrat in congress or running for office, is ever asked to comment on stuff like this.— All Hearing Ear 👂 (@1AllHearingEar) September 14, 2020
