Rowan County Clerk Race

A local political race in a northeast Kentucky town is drawing attention well beyond the Appalachian community. A gay man who was refused a marriage license by the current county clerk is running for that very position. 


David Ermold hopes to win his Democratic primary race tomorrow, so he has a chance to unseat Kim Davis.  Davis is the woman who wouldn’t grant him and his now husband their marriage license three years ago.   Media attention is affecting all four candidates in the county race.
