Sheheen Makes Push Amid 2014 Governor Run Talk
Democrat Vincent Sheheen hasn't said if he will challenge Gov. Nikki Haley in 2014, but he's already started asking supporters to contribute to his campaign.
State Sen. Vincent Sheheen hasn't said if he will make a run for the governor's office in 2014, but he's already soliciting donations for support.
Sheheen says a recent poll showing him beating Gov. Nikki Haley in a rematch is less about him and more about South Carolinians desire for a new direction in leadership.
In a statement Thursday, Sheheen wrote, "There's no time like the present to commit to good government in our state." He provided a link for for supporters to donate to his campaign in what he calls an effort to hold state officials accountable. The letter is attached to this story.
"Those of us in South Carolina know we deserve better than what we have gotten from our government officials," Sheheen said in the statement.
A poll released Tuesday morning, shows Sheheen (D-Camden) defeating the governor in a hypothetical rematch, 46 percent to 44 percent.
But will he make a run for the governor's office in 2014?
Sheheen said that he is unsure of his future, but that he knows the future of South Carolina is bright.
