The Louisiana petition has collected more than 12,300 signatures in four days. A separate effort from Texas has 15,400 supporters.
Similar petitions from 18 other states began arriving Nov. 9, bringing the total to 20. According to an article in the Examiner, only three states (Washington, Maine and Vermont) don’t have active secession petitions
The White House website publicly displays petitions that have attracted at least 150 signers.
Surprisingly not all of the petitions originate from red states. Other than Louisiana and Texas, states with secession-related petitions pending on the White House website now include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee.
