I'm Ritchie Whorton, and I'm a conservative Republican that has deep roots in the red clay of our district. I'm running to represent District 22 because I know our district deserves better. As a small businessman in construction, I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty and get the job done. That's the same work ethic I'll take to Montgomery - and my only political boss in Montgomery...will be YOU. I need your vote on Tuesday, June 3 in the Republican Primary.

Just met with Dr. G. There was a clot in one of McKenna's veins and it has been removed. He said she is very swollen, but ok. This is very unusual, but it happens. They are going to keep her in ICU over the weekend and that is music to my ears. Please thank God for this answered prayer. Thank everyone that took a moment to lift her and the surgical team in prayer. God is good!

McKenna Whorton is back is surgery. We are once again asking for prayers both McKenna and the surgical team. One minute she was fine, the next--her chin was purple. Please pray that they are able to save the skin and the flap. God is ALWAYS good and and we trust that His plan is greater than we can see.

We hope that you will come by for a hug and a sincere "thank you" on Tuesday.

“I said from day one that, if I was blessed enough to serve, my only political boss in Montgomery would be the people of District 22,” Whorton stated. “That statement has never been more true than today, and it will continue to be true four years from now.”

I am humbled, overwhelmed and so very grateful for your support. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. On to November 4th.

Remember to get out there and vote TODAY in the Republican Primary!

We're still out knocking on doors and campaigning for every vote, but I wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your support through this campaign. Shirley and I want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts and want to remind you to vote TOMORROW, JUNE 3rd, in the Republican Primary.

I am proud of the campaign I have run. Instead of making the race about my opponent, I have stuck to the issues and stressed the importance of active leadership for our district. This campaign has been a reflection of my values as a man of God, as a husband, and as a father. I’ve known Wayne Johnson for years. I thank him for serving his community through his career in law enforcement. However, when someone tells a malicious lie, they need to be called out on it. That is exactly what Wayne Johnson has done to me in a new and low attempt to hold his seat in Montgomery. I’m going to clearly lay out the facts for you so you can make a decision for yourself. In the end, I think you will see that Wayne Johnson is lying and he owes an apology to the people of District 22.

In the end, I think you will see that Wayne Johnson is lying and he owes an apology to the people of District 22. First, I have never taken money from the Alabama Education Association.

Tired of dirty politics? My opponent has taken money from 28 separate Montgomery PACs that keep filling up your mailboxes. I'm calling for a campaign that focuses on the issues - not on baseless attacks.

Ritchie Whorton calls on Wayne Johnson to stop baseless attacksCategories: NewsOWENS CROSS ROADS, Ala. — (May 27, 2014) In an effort to clean up the political climate in Montgomery, small businessman Ritchie Whorton is calling on his opponent, incumbent Wayne Johnson, and all Montgomery special inte…

Team Whorton…coming to a door near you! We have spent the day shaking the hands of the great voters of District 22. From day one, we have made every effort to run a campaign that addresses the issues that I believe are important to the people of this district and to avoid negative tactics. If you have seen the “puppet” mailer, I would like to assure you that I have never been anyone’s puppet and if you do not know me personally, I hope that you will take a few minutes to ...ask someone that does know me personally about my values and desire to improve the opportunities for the people of this district. We have our first direct mail piece coming out soon and it will not be attack based. Direct mail is expensive and in an effort to cut costs, we made the decision to focus our money and our efforts on a door-to-door grass roots campaign. I truly appreciate every person that has supported my campaign in any way. Shirley and I ask that you continue to pray for us as we spend the final days working to reach as many voters as possible. At the end of the day, the only people that will be pulling my “puppet” strings will be the people of District 22.
