He was a US Representative, US Senator and Governor of Minnesota. Nelson also served in the US Army during the American Civil War. He also had been a member of the Wisconsin assembly and Minnesota State Senate. He served in the United States House of Representatives from March 3, 1883 to March 3, 1889. He was elected the 12th Governor of Minnesota in 1892 and reelected in 1894, and served until January 31, 1895, when he resigned, preparatory to becoming Senator.
