TALLAHASSEE Fla.-- On Super Tuesday, voters in 12 states, including Georgia, and one territory will be making their voices heard.

Monday, presidential hopeful Donald Trump rallied at Valdosta State University to a packed out crowd.

Those in attendance say that during the rally about 30 black students were kicked out.

According to some students, those kicked out were part of a group silently protesting Trump. 

They say as soon as they walked in they were told to leave, before the presidential candidate even took the stage.

William Baskin, who was kicked out of the rally said, "I wouldn't call us protesters, I'd call us students because that's what we are and we came to the event as students dressed in black attire to show our unity, but we were just standing there and the only thing that happened was the audience around us, the Trump supporters, I guess they didn't like our presence." 

The group says they all had tickets to Monday's event, and were coming to hear what trump had to say.

Trump will be in Ohio and Kentucky on Tuesday.
