In 1849, he was appointed the state's representative on the board of directors of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad.

He also was the chairman of the state Democratic Party committee from 1883 to 1890, and was appointed to the U.S. Senate in March 1889, representing Virginia and serving until his death on 14 May 1892.
