Shelby Cullom (IL-R) serves as Gov, Sen, and Rep. He was one of many Whigs that were conflicted on whether to join the Republicans or Know Nothings after the Whigs dissolved, dabbling in both parties for awhile. It wasn't unusual for some to be on both tickets. Typically, these politicians liked the Know Nothings for their anti-slavery, rather than their anti-Catholic, anti-Immigrant stances.

His actions:

Cullom, Shelby 1885 his RR regulation bill passes Senate
