Add Kentucky Republican Matt Bevin to the list of politicians criticizing a National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman for calling Kentucky Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes an "empty dress."
"I find it offensive – highly offensive," Bevin, who is mounting a primary against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), told Kentucky's Courier-Journal and USA Today in an interview published Thursday.
"I am married and I have six daughters," Bevin said, before adding that the comments were "insulting and rude."
The remark was published in an article in The Hill on Wednesday. Democrats were quick to try and tie the comments to McConnell even though the NRSC spokesman, Brad Dayspring, does not report directly to McConnell. Bevin also linked the comments to McConnell. He said that "the NRSC and McConnell [campaign] are one in the same."
