OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Denise Bode was elected to a second six-year term on the Oklahoma Corporation Commission Tuesday over an Oologah newspaper publisher who has never held public office.

Bode, a Republican who serves as chairwoman of the three-member commission, was re-elected with about 60 percent of the vote over Democrat John Wylie, publisher of the weekly Oologah Lake Leader and a journalist who specializes in energy, environmental and utility issues.

The commission sets electricity, natural gas and telephone rates and regulates the oil and gas industry.
