|New Jersey General Assembly District 5|
Ratliff is a graduate of Toledo Law School.
In an interview with the Gloucester County Times, Ratliff listed his top priorities:
- "With the economy being in its current condition, job creation would be my primary priority. Second, education, which is my primary interest, should be addressed. I believe science and mathematics should be emphasized in our schools. This lands us to my third concern, alternative energy sources. In the not-so-distant future, there will be a demand for jobs in the energy sector. In addition, with the rising cost of necessities, the consumer will be interested in more affordable forms of energy."

Ratliff replaced Ari Ford on the Republican ticket after Ford withdrew following the June 7 primary. Ratliff and fellow Republican William Levins were defeated by Gilbert Wilson (D) and Angel Fuentes (D) in the November 8 general election.
