He is perhaps famous for his role in Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. During the 2008 elections, he was Clinton’s deputy campaign manager and played a significant role in aiding her to surpass Obama in the primary polls. He also played a role in helping her raise funds for her campaigns. His reason for supporting her was that she was the most favorable candidate to help his country improve its economic status.

Eight years later, during the 2016 USA national elections, he was at it again. This time around he was part of the National Finance Committee for Clinton’s campaign. He helped her raise approximately two hundred thousand dollars and enables her for a second time surpass her opponent Sanders in Puerto Rico.

During the same election period, he was the person in charge of Jennifer Gonzalez’s campaign who was contesting for a place in the US Congress as a Resident Commissioner. Luckily she won the position becoming both the first lady and the youngest ever to represent Puerto Rico in the Congress.

In 2016, during the SAN JUAN award, out of 59 persons from different fields who were being voted for by the public to make it into the list, Francisco garnered the highest votes.
