In 1892 he was elected State Representative from Brooksville, serving two terms, after which he was elected to the Brooksville City Commission, where he served from 1895 to 1900. While in the state legislature, he adopted an anti-corporate, pro-railroad regulation posture. In 1901 he was elected governor and served until 1905.
