A Look Into History: Jonathan Trumbull, Jr.


Jonathan Trumbull, Jr. was a Federalist politician who became the 2nd Speaker of the House of the United States in 1791. He served only one term as Speaker, and eventually ran for Senate. He was elected but later resigned to become Lt. Governor of Connecticut. When the then-governor died in office, Trumbull took office and was elected to 11 terms until his death in 1809.
