OKLAHOMA CITY - Ahead of Super Tuesday, several presidential hopefuls stopped by the Sooner State to drum up support for their campaigns.

However, one woman says she was kicked out of Donald Trump's rally last week at the Cox Convention Center.

Annie Gullo held a sign that read "Trump is a basketcase" during the rally, playing on Trump's own words toward Ted Cruz.

"Finally, I guess they noticed me, and so they came and they told me, 'Give me your sign," Annie Gullo said.

When Gullo refused, they gave her two options.

"They said, ‘Well, either this police officer is going to escort you out, or we're going to take your sign," she said.

The 23-year-old chose to leave the rally and stand outside the center.

"The whole arena was booing and the candidate said, 'Get her out of here. Anyone else?' And I was escorted all the way to the door," she remembered.

Gullo said it's what happened outside the center that made her afraid.

She took video while talking with Trump supporters.

Gullo posted about the incident on Facebook, and it's now been shared more than 600 times.

She said she wanted to protest at Bernie Sanders visit as well, but decided against it after this experience.

"I'm not pushing any political agenda. I really do not tolerate the hate and the bullying and the intimidation for political gain," Gullo said.

It seems to be a particularly heated political season for all parties involved.

Gullo said she does plan to vote in Super Tuesday tomorrow, but wouldn't say whom she is supporting.
