READINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey Republican leader is apologizing after some campaign fliers he placed on parked vehicles reminding people to vote in the state’s primary became baked into the windshields.

Hunterdon County Republican Committee Chairman Patrick Torpey tells NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1ZzZg1Q ) he removed any stuck fliers he could find on Wednesday.

Torpey placed the thick coated-paper fliers on vehicles Tuesday at train stations in Readington Township and High Bridge. Some of the fliers, which promoted Republican U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance, became sticky when the sun came out.

Police say at least one complaint has been filed, but that it was bad timing rather than vandalism. No charges are expected.

Both police and Torpey say they aren’t aware of any permanent vehicle damage.
