First served as an At-Large Delegate upon Florida's admission to the Union, serving from 1845 to 1846, when his election to the seat was successfully contested by William H. Brockenbrough. Elected again as an At-Large Delegate, serving this time from 1847 to 1851. Re-elected for another term, he represented Florida's 1st District from 1851 to 1853.
