MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -

Public Service Commissioner Terry Dunn triggered pushback last year when he sought formal hearings on the rates charged by Alabama Power and natural gas companies.

Now, three Republicans, who disagreed with the idea of formal hearings, are seeking to unseat him from the state panel that regulates utilities.

Four Republicans are competing for Place 2 on the Public Service Commission - Dunn, media production company owner Jonathan Barbee, former Greene County Commission Chairman Chip Beeker and Alabama Minority GOP chairman Phillip Brown.

Dunn said he is running on his record of standing up for the consumer. Barbee and Beeker have been critical of Obama administration energy policies. Brown said the state needs fewer politicians and more statesmen.

The GOP primary is June. 3. No Democrat is in the race.
