BISHOPVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen is spending the final days of the campaign crisscrossing South Carolina, trying to get voters to go to the polls.

Sheheen started his day Saturday at the New Zion AME Church, south of Bishopville. He had five more stops planned.

Sheheen told the enthusiastic crowd of about 75 people that nearly 300,000 African-Americans who voted in South Carolina in 2012 when President Barack Obama was re-elected didn’t vote in 2010 when he lost to Gov. Nikki Haley by 60,000 votes.

Sheheen says those votes could put him over the top Tuesday. He urged them to talk to friends and people at church.

Sheheen also pointed out he is touring the state in his 2011 Honda Accord while Haley is on a big bus.
