Kim Davis Loses Rowan Co. Clerk Re-Election Bid

(Morehead, KY) - Kim Davis has lost her re-election bid to remain as Rowan County Clerk. 

Democrat Elwood Caudill Jr. has defeated Davis by a comfortable margin.


Davis went to jail in 2015 for refusing to issue marriage licenses after same-sex marriage became legal.

Their race was a rematch of the 2014 Democratic primary, where Davis beat Caudill by 23 votes.  

Davis later switched parties because she said the Democratic party “abandoned her.”  She ran as a Republican, seeking a second four-year term to a job that pays her about $80,000 a year.
