In an effort to unseat the woman who denied him a same-sex marriage license three years ago, Rowan County democrat David Ermold has lost his bid to challenge incumbent Kim Davis.

Democrat Elwood Caudill earned the democratic nomination to challenge Davis in November after receiving more than half of the primary vote.
