FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Democratic party has filed an ethics complaints against Mitch McConnell in the U.S. Senate race between he and Alison Lundergan Grimes.

The Democratic Party filed its complaint with the Senate ethics committee.

Democrats claim that soon after McConnell had breakfast with a top airline executive in the Senate Dining Room, the executive contributed to McConnell's campaign.

McConnell campaign spokeswoman Allison Moore says the Democratic complaint is a frivolous attempt to divert attention from Grimes' problems.

A Grimes campaign spokeswoman called the GOP complaint a political stunt and said their compliance experts stand by the rental agreement the campaign made.
