Alison Lundergan Grimes, who's hoping to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) in Kentucky, compared her rival to a twice-heated biscuit.

Grimes said the unflattering comparison was a saying taught to her by her grandmother.

"I think what people -– not just Kentucky, but the nation –- are seeing is that Mitch McConnell, kind of like heating a biscuit twice, never tastes good the second time, no matter how much jam or jelly you put on it," Grimes told the Washington Post.

McConnell was recently called a "beltway turtle" by U.S. Senate candidate Dwayne Stovall, who is running in a Republican primary against Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).

Grimes has been hitting the campaign trail this week with former President Bill Clinton, who criticized McConnell for "not for doing anything and just obstructs things."
