Gov. McCrory Won't Attend Moogfest In Asheville

Gov. Pat McCrory won't attend the electronic music festival Moogfest next week in Asheville as originally planned.

McCrory spokesman Josh Ellis tells the Asheville Citizen-Times (http://avlne.ws/1jgDz18) that Moogfest organizers asked the governor to change his plans and not attend the festival Wednesday.

Moogfest spokeswoman Jill Lieberman initially said that McCrory wouldn't attend because of a scheduling conflict. After Ellis said organizers asked that the governor not attend, Moogfest officials said they regretted any miscommunication between themselves and the governor's office and that they appreciate his support of the festival.

Local residents had organized a protest to coincide with the governor's visit.
