- James F. Fielder became governor when Woodrow Wilson resigned to be President of the United States. As president of the senate, Fielder acted as governor until he resigned from the senate. The constitution prohibited governors from succeeding themselves, so he resigned to run, winning the race. This left Taylor, as speaker of the house of representatives, acting as governor for the remainder of the term.
