Sheheen: Haley more of the same if she's SC gov

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - State Sen. Vincent Sheheen says the race for South Carolina governor has officially begun.

The Camden Democrat said Wednesday that Republican nominee Nikki Haley would only bring more of what he called the failed agenda that Gov. Mark Sanford has offered for eight years.

Sheheen launched his campaign with a proposal that state government to do more work with in-state businesses.

He says he doesn't know enough about Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene to say if he would endorse him for the November election.

Republicans are calling for their primary losers to fall in line behind the GOP's nominees. The party was holding a unity breakfast Wednesday.
