In another sign that he could be preparing for a rematch against Gov. Nikki Haley, state Sen. Vincent Sheheen, D-Camden, is in Los Angeles this week for the Democratic Governors Association annual meetings.
Sheheen, who narrowly lost to Haley in 2010, said the group invited him to attend. Asked if his attendance means he is readying to run against Haley, Sheheen said it’s merely a sign that others are interested in seeing him challenge the first-term Republican. Sheheen reiterated that he’ll make a decision on whether to run in the coming months.
Sheeheen met privately with a collection of Democratic governors during September’s Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, saying he wanted to learn about challenges in their states.
