Initial public service

Bond's rise in Missouri politics was meteoric -- four years after he returned to his home state, Bond was elected governor. In 1968 Bond returned to his hometown of Mexico, Missouri, to run for Congress. He won the Republican primary in August, and nearly defeated the incumbent, Democratic Congressman Bill Hungate, in November. Then-Attorney General John Danforth hired Bond as an Assistant Attorney General in 1969, where Bond led the office's Consumer Protection Division. At the age of 31, Bond was elected Missouri State Auditor in 1970; two years later, Bond captured the governor's mansion. 1968 (MCMLXVIII) was a leap year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1968 calendar). ...

In many ways Bond governed as a moderate during his first term as governor: for example, he drew criticism from conservatives for his support of the Equal Rights Amendment.

In 1976, in a surprising upset, Bond was defeated for re-election by Democrat Joseph P. Teasdale, then Jackson County Prosecutor. Teasdale's tenure was rocky, and in 1980 Bond made a successful comeback, defeating fellow Republican and incumbent Lieutenant Governor Bill Phelps in the primary, and Teasdale in November.
