Kim Davis clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses loses reelection in Kentucky

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.
