Just a couple of days ago, the now-elect Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said, according to The Washington Post, that he had planned to campaign on economic issues, but after Kim Davis and the Planned Parenthood videos, he found voters wanted to hear about social issues: “I hear more about those now as I’m out on the campaign trail than I do about anything else,” he said.

Bevin’s upset victory in Kentucky is a victory for Kim Davis, a rebuke to those who say social issues hurt the GOP, and a call for Republicans nationally to support the First Amendment Defense Act.
