Issues

Campaign themes

2014

In a press release, Richmond highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • Excerpt: "We need a representative who will focus on growing Arkansas’ economy, instead of growing Arkansas’ government. Hard-working families need a representative who will fight to protect their hard earned wages instead of punishing working families with a burdensome tax rate."
  • Excerpt: "As a retired leader of Marines, I know the buck stops where the commanding officer stands. A real leader is responsible for everything he does or fails to do. That is the kind of leadership I’ve always sought to provide in all my endeavors, and if given the opportunity, that is the type of leadership I will take to Little Rock."
