Murty, 45, a registered Republican, didn’t really have a choice with the catering job. His partner, Bret Dalton (a registered Democrat), accepted the work on Saturday while Murty was away in Chicago watching a Cubs game. Dalton volunteered for Vice President Biden’s presidential campaign in 1988, when he was a student at Iowa State University.
“I would never say no to anybody for any reason,” Murty said. “My partner and I have different views in politics, but business is business.”
"She said they have selected 'Crumb and Get It" to be his stop on his way to Blacksburg and was wondering if that was ok."
Here's the part that might make other business owners crazy.
"This is an opportunity of a lifetime but essentially I said 'No offense to you or the campaign but I just decline you guys coming in here. At that time she said 'Are you sure? There's going to be a lot of press, a lot of activity,’" McMurray said.
Here's the back story, we’re told that shortly after Crumb and Get It told Biden’s advance people 'no' -- the secret service walked in and told Chris McMurray ''Thanks for standing up and saying 'no' -- then they bought a whole bunch of cookies and cupcakes.

It does seem to be getting more acceptable or even encouraged to be offensive when it comes to politics.
Like the other shopkeeper, he should have politely refused or told his partner. "He's your guy, you make his sandwiches."
I seem to remember during the Bush administration that we were told you should still respect the office even if you don't like who occupies it.

I could be mistaken but to solve the OP problem, the Bush admin. started a "protest section" for the people who wanted to protest, they could scream and make signs... down the street. They also inspected clothes for events so the TV wouldn't be albe to find shirts with the wrong message.
(I hope the deli owner didn't use a road to arrive at the event.)
