Mike Huckabee is planning to join protesters at a rally today, which will be taking place outside the jail where Kim Davis is being held.
He is also planning on a private meeting with Kim Davis, who is still defiant in her position despite being jailed for contempt of court. According to Huckabee, Davis is simply exercising her religious freedom by denying marriage licenses.
Naturally, many of the Republican candidates see this as an opportunity to GOP’s evangelical Christian wing, but not all Republican presidential candidates feel the same way. Even the much derided Donald Trump said that the US Supreme Court Ruling is “the law of the land”.
Huckabee’s visit, as well as the protests, are almost perfectly timed, as it comes just a day after Davis appealed the ruling which landed her jail in the first place.
