Romney supporters campaigned for their candidate outside the new Obama office in McLean on Monday night.
Nearly 250 Obama supporters from McLean and Great Falls turned out Monday night to the now-shuttered Blockbuster store on Chain Bridge Road to mark the grand opening of President Obama's new campaign office in McLean.
