He was appointed governor in 1846 but could not occupy the position because he did not have the required age, being only 28 years old at the time.
In 1847 he was elected deputy to the Congress of Querétaro. During the presidential term of Comonfort, he was governor of Guanajuato, but he resigned in 1857, after the coup d’état against Comonfort, and joined the liberal party.
In 1861 he was a member of president Benito Juárez’ cabinet and attempted to avoid the War of Intercession by signing the Treaty of Soledad on 19 February 1862. The English and Spanish forces withdrew but the French did not.
At the beginning of the invasion he resigned from his position in order to enter armed conflict, as he had done before during the War of Reform. He fought against the French in the Sierra of Querétaro, and in November of that same year, he was appointed Governor and Military Commander of Jalisco.
When accompanying Juárez in 1864, he arrived at El Paso del Norte (Ciudad Juárez) where he fell sick. He went to New York and, never having recovered, died on 19 June 1865.
