With the future of his campaign up in the air, Bernie Sanders has reportedly dropped an idea that he might skydive into a California rally. The internet was awash with speculation Friday about a barnstorming Bernie after a California newspaper reported that Sanders was considering the suggestion and had approached a local skydiving instructor.  

But the campaign quickly shot that down on Friday.  

Protesters Rush Stage at Sanders Rally in California
Clinton and Trump have also seen close calls in speeches and rallies

A small group of animal rights protesters rushed the stage at a Bernie Sanders rally in Oakland, California, on Monday, briefly disrupting the event before they were subdued by Secret Service agents, according to news reports.   

The disturbance is the latest example of physical altercations at presidential campaign events this year, as candidates from both parties try to harness what has been frequently described as an unusual amount of anger in the American electorate.
