(WHAS11) -- You've heard the saying empty suit, but there's a new twist on that phrase -- an empty dress.
"Empty dress" was the charge leveled against Alison Lundergan Grimes who is trying to unseat senator Mitch McConnell.
The comments were made by Brad Dayspring, the communications director for the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
He also said in an interview that she seems "incapable of articulating her own thoughts."
A spokeswoman for Grimes said in a statement those remarks were "degrading" and McConnell should condemn the comments.
