In 1900, Comings moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where he was a dairyman and bred Holstein cattle. He became well known as a lecturer on agricultural topics, and in 1920, he was elected the 24th Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin; he served two terms as lieutenant governor, from 1921 until 1925. In the 1924 election, he ran for Governor of Wisconsin but lost in the Republican primary to John J. Blaine, the incumbent. In 1927, he began working in the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, and in 1928 he was made a state humane officer. He held that office until his retirement at age 91 in 1939; he died in 1942 in Whitehall, Wisconsin and is buried in the Comings plot at the Saint Joseph City Cemetery in Saint Joseph, Michigan.
