State Rep. Wallace tweets about “succeeding from the union” after Presidential election, apologizes

By: Sarah Ulmer - November 12, 2020

Mississippi State Representative Price Wallace took to Twitter to show his disdain after news outlets began calling the Presidential race for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. While the intent was misspelled, Wallace said the below words:

In the tweet, Wallace says that the state of Mississippi should “succeed from the union and form our own country.” He almost immediately received backlash for the statement from other Twitter users.

Just a few days later, Wallace returned to the platform, after deleting the original tweet, with an apology for his words.

 

While Wallace and others in the GOP have joined President Donald Trump’s efforts to challenge the election results, some Republican legislators like Rep. Jansen Owen found a reason to put differences aside.

The five members of the Mississippi Congressional delegation released a joint statement that they would continue to support President Trump’s efforts to challenge any voter fraud within the 2020 election before a result was officially certified.

Attorney General Lynn Fitch joined 9 other Republican Attorneys General in a multi-state amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Boockvar, the Pennsylvania mail-in ballot case. A copy of the filed brief can be found here.

President Trump and his staff continue efforts to show voter fraud in the election in multiple states challenging the media’s call of Biden winning the White House.
