COLUMBIA, S.C. -

State Sen. Vincent Sheheen has filed for his spot on the ballot to challenge South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

The Camden Democrat filed his paperwork Tuesday morning with the state Election Commission. Haley was expected to file her candidacy in the afternoon.

Their filings officially signal the long-expected rematch between the 2010 general election opponents. Sheheen lost by 4.5 percentage points.

No other candidate has announced a run for governor. Unless someone jumps in the race before the two-week filing period ends Sunday, both Haley and Sheheen will go unchallenged in the June primaries.

As of their January campaign disclosures, Haley had $3.7 million available to spend on the race, while Sheheen had about $1.4 million.
