Ervin Launches Independent Bid in South Carolina

Tom Ervin (R) said that he has withdrawn from the Republican primary for South Carolina governor and will run as a petition candidate in the November election, the State reports.

"Ervin was a Democrat before switching to the Republican Party for a unsuccessful run in the 2005 special election to succeed House Speaker David Wilkins, who had been named the U.S. ambassador to Canada. Ervin has said he became a Republican because he's pro-life and a born-again Christian."
