Grimes was elected governor of Iowa in 1854 and remained in office until 1858. He served as a Republican United States Senator from 1859-1869. While a Senator, Grimes served on the Naval Committee and advocated the building of iron-clads and earthworks for defense rather than the traditional wooden ships and stone forts.
