In the 2019 legislative election, Torres ran in the Juntos por el Cambio list (of which PRO formed part) to the Chamber of Deputies in Chubut as the first candidate.[4] Torres’ list came second in the general election, with 32.29% of the vote against the Frente de Todos‘ 53.45%, enough for Torres to be elected.[5] He was sworn in on 4 December 2019.
