Richmond earned his B.S. in Physical Education from Arkansas Tech University. Richmond's professional experience includes coaching football and being the principal of a private school in Virginia. He served in the United States Marine Corps for more than 20 years, achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
In a press release, Richmond highlighted the following campaign themes:
- 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."
