RALEIGH, N.C. — Many North Carolina advocacy groups want incoming Gov. Pat McCrory to leave the selection of new state utilities regulators to others because of his nearly 30 years with Duke Energy.

The group N.C. WARN and the state branch of the AARP said Friday that they’re requesting McCrory remove himself from the selection of several members of the North Carolina Utilities Commission.

McCrory spokesman said the incoming governor plans to execute the powers of his office.
