Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis cries out after being released from the Carter County Detention Center, Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015, in Grayson, Ky. Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, was released Tuesday after five days behind bars.

Reuters reports that Rowan County clerk Kim Davis and her family have switched over to the Republican party, as they feel Democrats no longer represent their beliefs.

“My husband and I had talked about it for quite a while and we came to the conclusion that the Democratic Party left us a long time ago,” Davis told Reuters. “So why are we hanging on?”

Davis also mentioned that she saw no problem with the current marriage licenses, which omit her name and title and the name of the county.

“I don’t think there should be much of an issue,” she said, “and the judge didn’t have any problem accepting the licenses that were issued when I was incarcerated, which had been altered, so I don’t see that there should be an issue.”

She was quick to point out that she’s ready to go back to jail if necessary.
