Kim Davis (Credit: AP/Timothy D. Easley) Local elections are heating up, including one for Rowan county clerk in Kentucky. The position, currently held by gay marriage opponent Kim Davis, is being challenged by one of the men to whom she denied a marriage license in 2015. This continues a trend of everyday people defiantly challenging incumbents with whom they have personal scores to settle, which began in the Virginia elections this November. David Ermold formally announced his plans to run against Davis Wednesday, and submitted the documents directly to Davis. It’s official.
