I assume you are referring to Richard Dobbs Spaight (1758-1802), who was a signer of the U.S. Constitution. Although he was a strong supporter of George Washington, he seems to have been converted to the view of the Jeffersonian Republicans, who selected their presidential candidates with a caucus comprised of members of congress. This system soon proved unworkable, and was later discarded; but Spaight did not live to see it fail-- he was killed as a result of a duel in 1802, when he was only forty-five. I enclose a link to a site about his life, and that of his son, who also went into politics.
