Francisco Domenech: Venturing into Political Circles

Being a Superdelegate sounds fun, as a non-elected delegate, one can vote for whomever he or she pleases at the Democratic national convention. For Francisco Domenech, this has happened twice in 2008 and 2012. And if that is not enough, he also served as a Hillblazer for Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, appointed by Mrs. Clinton herself, while occupying a seat in her Finance Committee.

Francisco Domenech was born on the 29th of April 1978 in San Jose, which is the largest city in Puerto Rico. He is a two time graduate from the University of Puerto Rico, first in 1999 with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree and then later in 2003 with a Juris Doctor degree from the university’s Law School.

As a man vast with the knowledge of the law, his run-in with political figures began two years after his graduation when he was jointly appointed by Kenneth McClintock, who is the president of the Puerto Rico Senate, and Jose Aponte, the speaker as Director in the Office of Legislative Services of Puerto Rico which he held for a couple of years from 2005 to 2008, where he had a staff of 130 employees, and an annual budget of $11 Million. His success as the Director propelled him to be able to meet and work with other political figures such as Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary. Visit to learn more
