Kentucky clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses voted out

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis with Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee at her side greets the crowd after being released from the Carter County Detention Center in Grayson Ky. Davis hauled to jail

Elwood Caudill Jr. will be the new clerk for Rowan County after winning 4,210 votes to Davis' 3,566, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. In the Democratic primary last May, Caudill defeated David Ermold, who had sued Davis after she refused to issue a marriage license to him and David Moore.

Davis made worldwide headlines when she said her Christian faith prevented her from granting licenses to gay couples after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized marriage equality in 2015, for which she was briefly sent to jail.

But he said the situation was "precarious" due to the "rise of nationalism" inside Europe, as well as due to its external threats. Macron said, "we need a Europe that defends itself better alone, without just depending on the United States".

She was ultimately held in contempt of court and served five days in jail.

Unofficial results from Kentucky's Rowan County shows Kim Davis, a county clerk who made headlines for refusing to issue a marriage license to a gay couple, is heading for defeat.

This year, he ran as a Republican and earned backing from former Trump advisor Roger Stone and tax-cut activist Grover Norquist . Hof, a reality TV star of the HBO show " Cathouse ", died last month at the age of 72 after a weekend celebrating his birthday.

Both candidates say they do not think the national attention will influence the outcome of the election. When she was released, she took her name off the state marriage license form.

Davis has called Caudill to concede the race. But Caudill, chief deputy in the county property valuation office, eventually won over the Democrats.
