Wooten wins Lexington Co. runoff for District 69

Chris Wooten, owner of Bodyshop Athletics, received the Republican nomination for SC House of Representatives seat 69 following a runoff election on March 13 with fellow candidate Anne Marie Eckstorm Green.

In an interview with WACH Fox, "This is where I chose to put my roots because it is a fantastic place to live. The people of this town really need great representation and that's been my intent all along; to provide integrity and trust back in the statehouse.

Wooten, 49, has served as a member of the Presidential Security Detail and the President’s Council for Sports Fitness Counsel for Presidents Bush and Reagan.

House Seat 69 was vacated in December after former majority leader Rick Quinn resigned, pleading guilty to office misconduct.

Bodyshop Athletics, Inc. was named the Greater Lexington Chamber Small Business of the Year in 2016.
