Kim Davis, the Christian clerk who was jailed in 2015 for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, just lost her Rowan County, Kentucky clerk seat to her Democratic rival, Elwood Caudill Jr., according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Davis was sued by five couples and a judge ordered her to issue the marriage licenses, but the cases were eventually dismissed after the Kentucky state legislature amended the marriage license process so that clerks did not have to sign their names on the documents.
Davis' religious activism was a major point of Caudill's platform: “When I say I will faithfully execute the job of Rowan County Clerk and serve all citizens equally...Of course, that means LGBTQ+ citizens,” Caudill said on his campaign website.
