I'm pretty much convinced at this point that any politician in the United States who uses the word secede/succeed/secession in any sentence, in any context, is going to be a certifiable nutter. Price Wallace proving there's no exception to the rule.

A Mississippi farmer turned GOP state lawmaker reportedly wrote on social media that Mississippi should “succeed” from the union after President Donald Trump lost to Joe Biden; he later removed the post.
Rep. Price Wallace, R-Mendenhall, apparently misspelled the word “secede” in his social media post, but the meaning was clear.
“We need to succeed (sic) from the union and form our own country,” Wallace wrote in a Nov. 7 tweet that has since been deleted.
Wallace was first elected in 2018 and represents Mississippi’s 77th District, which includes portions of Rankin and Simpson counties.
The tweet calling for Mississippi to secede was posted in reply to a comment written on social media by a former Mississippi lawmaker and failed candidate for governor Robert Foster.
And a few responses.
Mississippi House Rep. Price Wallace: “We need to succeed [sic] from the union and form our own country."
That tweet came in response to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris' victory in the presidential race.

Congressman @pricewallace calls for his state, Mississippi, to “succeed”. Seems legit given the amount of Fed funding they receive. We all want Mississippi to succeed. The Congressman then responds as a toxic GOP does. Way to represent, sir! pic.twitter.com/G8krd9gxp4
