Remarks: Hudspeth was elected to the state House of Representatives in 1902 and the the State Senate in 1906; he served in the latter body until 1918. In 1909, he was admitted to the bar and joined the El Paso firm of Nealon, Hudspeth and McGill. In 1918, he was elected the the United States House of Representatives and became one of the most vocal supports of American intervention in the ongoing political struggles across the Rio Grande in Mexico.
