Mike Huckabee: Jailed Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis Fighting 'Judicial Tyranny'

He plans to meet with her Tuesday.

"What we’ve seen here is the overreach of the judiciary," he said. "This, if allowed to stand without any congressional approval, without any kind of enabling legislation, is what [President Thomas] Jefferson warned us about. That’s judicial tyranny."

Huckabee said he would consider resigning or going to jail if he was forced to choose between following his religious beliefs and the law, though he said he did not foresee that happening if elected president.

He will travel to Kentucky on Tuesday to meet with Davis in jail and rally with her supporters.
