RENO, Nev. (AP)- The jurors selected to decide the fate of a former Nevada lobbyist accused of making illegal campaign contributions to Sen. Harry Reid say they don't have strong enough feelings about the Nevada Democrat one way or another to sway their opinion in the case.
Five women, seven men were selected for Harvey Whittemore's jury on Wednesday after a day of questioning from U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks and lawyers on both sides.
Whittemore is accused of illegally funneled nearly $150,000 to Reid's campaign in 2007.
The first witness is expected to take the stand on Tuesday after lawyers present their opening statements.
Potential witnesses include Reno Mayor Bob Cashell, former state Supreme Court Justice Bob Rose and Sue Lowden, a former Republican challenger for the Senate majority leader's seat.
