Turnout for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen's morning stop at Aiken Municipal Airport doubled from his visit at the same site last month.
About 30 Democrats showed support for Sheheen in his last day of campaigning before Tuesday's election.

Sheheen was also joined by his wife, Amy, House majority whip Rep. James Clyburn and Lieutenant Governor candidate Ashley Cooper.

Clyburn said he hasn't felt as excited about a state gubernatorial ticket as he has in 2010.

"This is a ticket that can make South Carolinians proud," he said. "The campaign is peaking at just the right time."

Randy Keisler, of Lexington, said he made the morning drive to Aiken for a chance to meet Sheheen. Although Keisler's from the hometown of Republican competitor Nikki Haley, he said wants to stand behind a candidate that has a passion for education and moving the state forward.

"After listening to the debates, I think he's set a standard of saying something on education and jobs rather than just giving the same rhetoric about eliminating the status quo," said Keisler.

Sen. Sheheen, of Kershaw County, faces Hale and Green Party candidate Morgan Reeves on Tuesday.

“Republicans for Sheheen” is

“Republicans for Sheheen” is getting increasingly popular ... It looks that only those conservative voters who want to promote the culture of lies and corruption are voting for Haley. All others are voting for Sheheen. It is great to observe that people have realized that Sheheen is a conservative democrat and not an Obama liberal.
