BURLINGAME, Calif. (AP) -

Skirmishes are breaking out between protesters turning out at the Burlingame, California, hotel where Donald Trump is speaking at the California GOP convention and Trump supporters.

Adam Harry, a retired aerospace engineer, says he went to the venue to take a look Friday and was confronted by anti-Trump demonstrators who punched him, spit on him and threw his phone to the ground.

The scene appeared to calm somewhat after Trump entered the hotel from a back entrance -- avoiding protesters -- and took the podium.
