Wedding 10

A gay man who was denied a marriage license in Kentucky two years ago by a county clerk who refused to issue licenses for same-sex marriages will run to unseat her next year, he said on Wednesday. He wants Davis' job.

David Ermold has lived in Rowan County for 14 years, according to CNN; and has been romantically involved with his husband David Moore since 1998, as mentioned in the "Background" of the appeals court ruling reviving Ermold and Moore's lawsuit against Davis, which says that "On July 6, 2015, David Ermold and David Moore, two male residents of Rowan County, Kentucky, who had by that time been in a committed relationship for seventeen years, applied for a marriage license at the Rowan County Clerk's Office". While she was in jail, then-Republican presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz visited her.

But Caudill, like many people in Morehead, doesn't want to talk about Davis and gay marriage. "I think politicians need to answer some questions". "I have an obligation here, really, to do this and to set things right". Davis smiled and welcomed them, chatting with them about the state retirement system and the upcoming Christmas holiday.

"I'm not being disrespectful to you", she told the pair. Asked if she thought she deserved to be re-elected, Davis said: "That will be up to the people".

Everton, though, failed to reach the group stages, losing in controversial fashion to Villarreal in the third qualifying phase. Roma has advanced to the round of 16 as group winners along with Paris St-Germain, despite their 1-3 defeat in Munich.

"She does a good job and should be re-elected", he said.

Davis doesn't object to issuing marriage licenses now that the state Legislature has changed the law so her name is not on the license. "We went back three times and it was just exhausting". Davis was elected in 2014 as a Democrat. "In light of these proceedings, and in view of the fact that the marriage licenses continue to be issued without incident, there no longer remains a case or controversy before the Court", Judge David Bunning wrote in 2016. Davis said she felt betrayed by her party and switched her registration to Republican. Rowan County, population 24,000, voted for Donald Trump by a 58-37 margin in last year's election. Davis said she would refuse to allow any of her employees to issue the licenses, as well, though the standoff was eventually resolved when one of her deputies, Brian Mason, began to do so anyway.

"David Ermold's candidacy is irrelevant". Patton Oswalt, the comedian and actor, sent Ermold a tweet on Wednesday asking: "Anything I can do to help?"

Ermold and his partner, David Moore, were one of the couples Davis denied a marriage license to.

Brothers of Mercy set as 'Toys for Tots' drop-off
Reynolds said. "I saw firsthand how Toys for Tots can positively impact a family who is a little down on their luck". In 2016, Toys for Tots spent an additional $10 million to bridge the gap between donations and demand.

David Ermold, 43, teaches English at the University of Pikeville and directs Morehead Pride, a local gay rights organization in the city.

Davis's attorney, Mat Staver, attacked Ermold as a novice who would have "no idea how to run a clerk's office".

And he said his campaign won't focus exclusively on the LGBT rights.

Ermold said Davis' position within the religious right is bringing more politics to the job.
