Republican Gubernatorial candidate Matt Bevin pulled off a stunning victory to become the new Governor Elect for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Commenting on Governor Elect Bevin's win tonight, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis said, "I congratulate Matt Bevin on his win. I am ecstatic. He is such a genuine and caring person. I will be forever thankful that he came to visit me while I was in jail. At a clerks' meeting he hugged me and said he was praying for me. I am looking forward to his leadership as our new governor."
"The election was not even close. The lopsided victory for Matt Bevin stunned most political pundits. There is no question that the issue of religious freedom and same-sex marriage played a role in the results. The people favor traditional values and marriage, and they are tired of the political elites represented by Governor Beshear who are out of touch with ordinary, God-loving citizens," said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. "We look forward to working with Governor Elect Matt Bevin to accommodate the religious convictions of Kim Davis and other Kentucky clerks. Finally, we will have common sense and the Constitution prevail in Kentucky," concluded Staver.
Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
