Glo Smith, an African-American Republican hoping to unseat Democratic Rep. Corinne Brown in Florida's Fifth Congressional District, says she isn't going to be distracted from the issues after someone painted her face white on a campaign sign.

Smith tweeted a photo of the sign on Sunday, but told Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" on Thursday she did not report the incident to police because there are more serious crimes in the area that police need to be focused on.



"Whatever their motives were I can't control, but what I can control is this campaign," Smith told guest host Andrea Tantaros. "Our campaign is not about race; it's about the issues." 

Smith said Brown has done little in her 21 years in Congress to improve things in the district. Smith said she wants to bring economic development and jobs to the district with an unemployment rate of more than 17 percent. 

Smith faces fellow Republican Thuy Lowe in an August primary.
