William Spry came onto the political scene in Utah at the time the Progressive Movement was spreading across the nation. These winds of change were also blowing over Utah in the first years of the twentieth century. The period was one of significant economic, political, and social transformation as the new state of Utah emerged from its conflict-fiddled, territorial cocoon. The success of the American party in the 1905 election in Salt Lake City clearly threatened Senator Smoot's chances for reelection in 1908. William Spry was brought into the Smoot machine, known as "The Federal Bunch," because of his popularity and his political abilities. In 1908 the supporters of Smoot shifted their backing from incumbent Governor Cutler to Spry. They believed they needed to have the best "vote-getter" on the ticket and that "Cutler would have to be shoved aside, rudely if necessary, for the good of the party.

The Governor of Utah is the head of the executive branch of Utah's state government and the commander-in-chief of its military forces. The governor has a duty to enforce state laws as well as the power to either approve or veto bills passed by the Utah Legislature. The governor may also convene the legislature on "extraordinary occasions". The self-proclaimed State of Deseret, precursor to the organization of the Utah Territory, had only one governor, Brigham Young.
