WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has reimbursed his political campaign for more than $16,000 in holiday gifts made by his granddaughter and given to his friends and supporters.

Reid's office said Tuesday his granddaughter has a company and makes jewelry and similar items, and he decided to give some of her work as presents last year.

The expense was initially charged to the Democrat's campaign, Friends for Harry Reid. But he announced he would pay out of his own pocket after the Federal Election Commission asked last week for further information and Republicans ridiculed the payments to his granddaughter.

A spokesman for the campaign, Chris Anderson, says it's complied with all federal election rules.
