Gay man running against Kentucky official who denied him a marriage license

David Ermold, who was twice denied a license to marry his male partner David Moore by a county clerk in 2015, is all set to run against her in the elections to be held in May 2018. She is excited to vote for Ermold and get Davis out of office and joined him at the lightly attended event at Coffeetree Books in downtown Morehead. She was jailed for five days because she violated court orders. But Morehead resident Bill Roberts said he's one of many true blue supporters of Davis and her stance on gay marriage.

Retired Morehead instructor Joe Sartor said the community is pretty divided over Davis, so he thinks Ermold has a shot. A Kentucky law was then changed so her name would not have to appear on the marriage licenses. Davis said she would refuse to allow any of her employees to issue the licenses, as well, though the standoff was eventually resolved when one of her deputies, Brian Mason, began to do so anyway. She has been County Clerk since 2014, although she worked for her mother, who was also clerk, before being elected to the position.

Ermold said he was also discouraged by politicians who used the Rowan rift to further their candidacies in the presidential primary.

Mr Khan then visited the Golden Temple complex, where the holiest of Sikh shrines, Harmandir Sahib, is located and offered prayers.

Ermold said Davis' position within the religious right is bringing more politics to the job. "I don't think the other candidates are looking at a larger message".

David Ermold is running against Kim Davis to be the county clerk in Rowan, Ky. "Much of what the clerk does has nothing to do with wedding licenses". While Republican Donald Trump overwhelmingly won the county during the 2016 presidential election, almost all of the local elected officials are Democrats and always have been.

"I think it just blew up and put us in a bad light in a lot of ways", he said. Patton Oswalt, the comedian and actor, sent Ermold a tweet on Wednesday asking: "Anything I can do to help?" He grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and came to Kentucky 19 years ago to be with his boyfriend, now husband, Moore. He says he is more than qualified to run the office, which keeps track of the county's records including real estate transactions and vehicle registrations.

Ermold also said that his campaign will not only focus on the LGBT rights but will also give prominence to other issues. He said he is exhausted of the "divide and conquer" style of politics that has come to dominate most elections, where candidates purposefully take stances to energize some voters while angering everyone else.

According to a report in the Associated Press, Ermold said: "People. are back home bickering and fighting with each other and fighting on social media".

"This is how gay people are treated in this country, this is what it's like, this is their experience, this is how it feels", Ermold said in 2015.
