Robinson again assumed the position as Speaker of the Senate on August 16, 1862 as part of a political deal to effect the resignation of Governor Beriah Magoffin.[3] Magoffin's lieutenant governor, Linn Boyd, had died in office in 1859, and Magoffin was unwilling to allow John Fisk, then Senate Speaker and next in line for the governorship, to succeed him.[3] Magoffin agreed to resign if the Senate would elect Robinson as Speaker, putting him next in line for the governorship.[3] This was done, and at 10:00 a.m. on August 18, 1862, Robinson succeeded Magoffin upon the latter's resignation.[3]

The Civil War was ongoing during Robinson's administration. During Robinson's tenure, the Confederacy made its major advance into the Commonwealth.[1] In an attempt to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth, Robinson raised taxes in an effort to revive Kentucky's state militia.[8] He was also concerned with the effect the war had on public education in the state.[8] He asked the General Assembly to investigate the condition of state schools, especially in war-ravaged areas, and encouraged them to accept the Lincoln administration's offer of land to establish an agricultural and mechanical college
