Tom Ervin dropped out of the SC governor’s race today, and endorsed far left democrat Vince Sheheen. I find this very disturbing for someone who has campaigned as an “independent republican”. That someone who calls himself a ‘conservative’ to endorse a liberal, pro union candidate is at the very least disorienting.
I find it hard to believe that this really happened out of Ervin’s ‘good intention.’ I believe that this corrupt bargain has been in the works for months now, and that Ervin has only had the intention of endorsing Vince Sheheen ever since he submitted his ballot petition.
Fortunatelly, this will not have too much of an effect on the general election. Haley may win by only 7 points instead of 15, but it’s a win none the less.
