Surrounded by sheriff's deputies, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, with her son Nathan Davis standing by her side, makes a statement to the media Monday at the front door of the county Judicial Center in Morehead, Ky.

This week on The Ticket: The Texas Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott look at the role religion is playing in the 2016 presidential race. They talk with Sarah Posner of Religion Dispatches on how religion is being used in the GOP Primary.

And then from WPLN and the NPR Political Reporting Partnership we hear from Chas Sisk about the story of a Republican Muslim in Tennessee who's having trouble finding acceptance in his chosen party.
