Ritch's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
|“||The platform I stand on include: running to protect and expand Alabama’s energy sector (coal mining, electrical generation, and oil/gas exploration), eliminating state government inefficiencies, public educational reform, jobs creation, cutting taxes, pro-Constitutional rights, and providing a legislative buffer to the expansion of the Obama Administration’s draconian regulations on healthcare and environmental policies. I want to do my part, legislatively, to complete the Northern Beltline as an economic catalyst for the northern metro area. I am running to continue to be a stalwart of conservative principles and protector of individual rights.||”|

Elections for the office of Alabama State Senate took place in 2014. A primary election took place on June 3, 2014; a runoff election took place where necessary on July 15, 2014. The general election was held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was February 7, 2014. Shay Shelnutt, Jim Murphree, Gayle Gear, Brett King, Adam Ritch, Joe Cochran, and Jim Roberts faced off in the Republican primary. Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters - Shelnutt and King - met in a runoff election, which Shelnutt won. Shelnutt was unchallenged in the general election.
Ritch and his wife, Charlene, have three children.
