Florentino Domínguez was known in Tlaxcala as “El Profe” due to his training as a teacher.
He made a political career in the PRI and since 1985 he was a federal deputy on three occasions, the last time in the period between 2000 and 2003. He also campaigned in 1988 for former president Carlos Salinas de Gortari.
