    On February 21, 1848, Wood presided over the Texas Democratic convention, the first true political convention to be held in the state.

As a result he won the election with 7,154 votes compared to second place finisher James B. Miller with 5,106. When the governor took office, Texas had US$5,500,00 in outstanding bonds with no obvious means to repay the debt. To deal with the public debt, he advocated a plan to sell state land to the U.S. Federal government. The Texas Legislature did not support this plan and, after negotiations with Wood, passed a bill calling for the state Accountant and comptroller to determine the exact amount of debt before a method of payment was determined.
