Clerk who granted same-sex marriage licenses in New Mexico loses bid for another office

The county clerk who issued marriage licenses to dozens of gay couples in February overwhelmingly lost her bid for a county commission seat.

With all ballots counted, unofficial results Wednesday showed Victoria Dunlap with 76 votes to 199 for Chris Espinosa, Sandoval County election officials said. The results will be not be official until state election officials certify the votes in about three weeks.

She did not immediately respond to calls to her home and office seeking comment Wednesday.

Dunlap granted 66 same-sex marriage licenses eight days after San Francisco began marrying hundreds of gay couples. Nearly 4,000 couples were married there between Feb. 12 and March 11, when California's Supreme Court halted the weddings.
