COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Democratic state Sen. Vincent Sheheen has raised more than $610,000 toward his second run for governor.

Campaign filings for the quarter ending June 30 show that donors gave $611,314 in Shaheen's first 2½ months officially in the race. The figures were released Wednesday night.

A rematch of the 2010 race between Sheheen and Republican Gov. Nikki Haley has long been expected. Haley hasn't officially announced if she's running for re-election.

Sheheen announced his candidacy April 10.

A statement from the campaign said more than half of Sheheen's collections came in amounts of $100 or less, and more than 90% came from South Carolinians.

According to a senior adviser, Haley's second-quarter filings will show that she raised more than $619,000 and has more than $2.4 million in cash on hand.
