In the battle of Kim Davis' groupies, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) is the clear winner.
The Republican presidential candidate made sure he was front and center Tuesday when the Kentucky clerk jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses was released from jail. He stood next to Davis when she greeted supporters waiting for her outside, and even vowed to, if it was possible, go to jail "in her place." Fellow GOP candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) also made the journey down to Kentucky, but his plan to show solidarity and share the spotlight with Davis was foiled by Huckabee, who sent an aide over to physically block him from speaking with reporters. The New York Times reports that after the incident, Cruz "appeared incredulous." A few moments later, Huckabee stood shoulder to shoulder with Davis onstage, while "Mr. Cruz stood off to the side, keeping an unusually low profile during the event."
