Spong was born in Portsmouth, Virginia and attended the public schools as a youth, and later Hampden-Sydney College, the University of Virginia, and the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. He studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1947, commencing practice in Portsmouth soon thereafter. During World War II, Spong served in the Army Air Corps, Eighth Air Force from 1942 to 1945. After the War, Spong was a lecturer in law and government at the College of William and Mary from 1948 to 1949.

In 1966, Spong was elected as a Democrat to the United States Senate for the six-year term commencing January 3, 1967.
