Tom Ervin, who is running for governor as a self-proclaimed "independent Republican" candidate, will put on an aggressive barnstorming tour in early September.
Ervin announced Wednesday he will host town hall meetings in 23 cities across the state between Sept. 2 and Sept. 13.
The independent candidate seems like a long shot to win the gubernatorial race, but he has proven he is quite serious about his campaign, sinking major dollars into TV ads that already have been popping up during evening newscasts. Ervin is facing incumbent Republican Gov. Nikki Haley and Democratic challenger state Sen. Vincent Sheheen in the November general election. Haley edged Sheheen in the 2010 race.
Also on the gubernatorial ballot are Libertarian Steve French and United Citizens Party candidate Morgan Bruce Reeves.
"Tom will share his vision of common sense reform across South Carolina with 23 public town halls," Ervin press secretary Christian Hertenstein said, in a prepared statement. "Unlike Gov. Haley and Sen. Sheheen, all of Tom's meetings will be open to the public and the media, exemplifying his commitment to transparency and willingness to engage all South Carolinians as he works to fix our infrastructure, deliver a world class education to our youth and build an inclusive economy for all of South Carolina."
