Connally, a long-time associate of former President Johnson, served Johnson as secretary of the House of Representatives in 1939 and later as Administrative Assistant of the United States Senate in 1949. Between those two assignments, Connally earned a distinguished World War II record. Upon his return from naval service in 1946, Connally became president, general manager, and attorney for radio station KVET in Austin, Texas, a business he helped organize.
