GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Independent gubernatorial candidate Tom Ervin wants to end South Carolina’s personal income tax and increase the minimum wage in the state.

Ervin’s plans are mentioned in a 30-second ad he is releasing Monday to stations across the state.

Ervin says South Carolina can offset the minimum wage increase with small business tax credits. He also says the state must stand tall for the port in Charleston.

The former Republican legislator and judge has already spent $1.4 million of his own money on his bid for governor. He briefly planned to enter the Republican primary and challenge Gov. Nikki Haley before dropping out and pursuing an independent bid to win the governor’s office.
