He is an active member of the Springfield Republican Party and speaks with a heavy Texas drawl. In Season 5's "$pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling)" (the Rich Texan's debut), Homer addresses the Rich Texan as "Senator", although this was never mentioned again. He once owned a logging company and once attempted to cut down Springfield's tallest Redwood tree, until his company was destroyed by the gigantic tree after it slid down a hill. One of Richard's fondest dreams is to build the world's first drive-through humidor.
Richard always carried two revolvers, and he had a common habit of pulling them out and firing them into the air while yelling, "Yee-haw!" whenever he is happy or excited. He has been to jail at least once when one of his stray bullets hit a Texas Ranger and the police made him switch to blanks, but he noted that "They just don't feel the same". He once held Homer and Moe at gunpoint, while forcing them to walk along with him after being tricked by the two. He once went over the top and lost his mind after doing something generous for Ned.
Richard revealed that he suffers from pogonophobia (the fear of beards and mustaches), the excuse he gives Homer for parking in a handicap spot; he then promptly shoots at least one man dressed as Santa Claus. He is also obsessive-compulsive and counts 1-2-3-4 before firing his pistols.
Richard stated that he enjoys moonlight walks on the beach.
Richard's license plate reads "NO SHAME".
