MOREHEAD, Ky. (Lexington Herald-Leader) — Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk made famous by her refusal to sign marriage licenses for gay couples, lost Tuesday in her reelection bid for the Rowan County clerkship.
Davis, a Republican, lost to Democratic challenger Elwood Caudill Jr. by about 700 votes.
Her loss marks at least a temporary end to the saga that has surrounded the clerk’s office since 2015, when Davis was jailed for five days after refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals as long as her name was on them.
