'No Swiss Mitt'

Washington (CNN) - About 10 people from "American United for Change" chanted "No Swiss Mitt" outside the headquarters of the Republican National Committee, while presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney met with party officials inside.

The small group of activists chanted for less than five minutes, and stopped as soon as the TV crews walked away to go back to waiting for Romney.

Scenes from the trail: Obama supporters target McCain's condo


Watch footage of the protest in Virginia Friday.

ARLINGTON, Virginia (CNN) - Supporters of Democrat Barack Obama held a press conference outside John McCain's Arlington, Virginia home with signs reading, "Like Bush's economy? “Hire McCain" and "I have 1 house." Democrats have been attacking McCain as out of touch after he told an interviewer he was unsure of how many houses he owned.

A few blocks away from McCain's headquarters, a handful of the presumptive Republican nominee’s supporters came out to counter-protest, with signs that read "Obama's housing – shady deals" and "Obama buys houses from felons." The McCain campaign released an ad yesterday that highlights Obama’s past relationship with convicted Chicago developer Tony Rezko.
