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

Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who made national headlines after refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses after gay marriage was legalized, lost her bid for reelection Tuesday.

The Republican county clerk lost to Democrat Elwood Caudill Jr. by about 700 votes, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Davis was briefly jailed in September 2015 after the denied a judge’s order to issue the marriage licenses.

“I just want to give God the glory,” she said after being released from behind bars. “We serve a living God who knows exactly where each and every one of us is at. He is worthy, he is worthy.”

Caudill won his primary election after beating David Ermold, a gay man who had his own marriage license denied by Davis in 2015.
