(CNN) — Federal agents raided City Hall in New Jersey’s capital on Thursday, one day after they swarmed the home of the city’s mayor, his brother and a campaign supporter.

“The FBI is executing search warrants at various offices at Trenton City Hall, pursuant to an ongoing investigation,” said FBI spokeswoman Barbara Woodruff.

It was not immediately clear why the raids were conducted and authorities declined to elaborate.

Mayor Tony Mack responded to the Wednesday raids by saying he had “not violated the public trust in any way, nor have I violated any of my public duties.”
