By Sharon Bernstein BURLINGAME, Calif. (Reuters) - Protests erupted on Friday outside the venue where U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump was set to speak to a group of California Republicans, a day after a demonstration against the former reality TV star turned ugly. Protesters, who held signs and Mexican flags, at one point rushed security gates, and police officers had their batons out. Jim Brulte, chairman of the California Republican Party, said protesters delayed Trump’s entrance to the hotel where the event was being held.
