Eaton was then elected Lieutenant Governor, serving from 1843 to 1846, and Governor, serving from from 1846 to 1848. As Governor, Eaton was an active opponent of the Mexican War. He also played a key role in creating the post of state Superintendent of Public Instruction, and from 1846 to 1850 was the first person to hold the position.
