Political career

In 2003 Osorio was elected to serve as a Representative in the Chamber of Deputies of Mexico, hence he served during the LIX Legislature.

Before being elected Governor he held several public positions in the administration of the state of Hidalgo, mainly performing in the portfolios of Government and Social Development. He was elected Governor of the state of Hidalgo in 2005 for the period April 1, 2005, through March 31, 2011.
