Kim Davis lost her reelection bid for Rowan County clerk in Kentucky on Tuesday to her Democratic challenger

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.

Jets' Sam Darnold on struggles: 'Quite frankly, I'm just playing stupid'
The New York Jets stumbled their third straight loss in Week 9 after a disappointing 13-6 loss on the road to the Miami Dolphins . Coach Todd Bowles after the game said Long had not been benched for performance issues but because he reinjured the finger.

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.

Bears' Khalil Mack (ankle) 'unlikely' to play vs. Bills, report says
Chicago's Mitchell Trubisky finished 12 for 20 for 135 yards with a 2-yard touchdown to tight end Trey Burton and an interception. The Bears won their second in a row and improved to 5-3 to match their best start to a season through eight games since 2013.

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.
