Kim Davis, the law clerk jailed in 2015 for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, lost her re-election bid to her Democratic rival on Tuesday.

Elwood Caudill Jr. is the new Rowan County, Kentucky clerk, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

The case made national headlines when Davis said she couldn't betray her Christian faith since those licenses would be granted under her authority. Critics called her a bigot, while many others called her a religious rights hero.

Davis was sued by five couples, and a judge ordered her to issue the marriage licenses.

However, the cases were dismissed after the Kentucky state legislature amended the marriage license process so that clerks did not have to sign their names on the documents.

Caudill addressed Davis' actions on his own campaign website and vowed to "serve every citizen of this county equally."
