Ricardo Lopez Murphy
Ricardo Hipolito Lopez Murphy is an Argentine economist and politician.
In 2002, he founded his political party Recreate for Growth and ran for the presidency in the April 2003 elections, finishing third behind Carlos Menem and Nestor Kirchner, with 16.3% of the popular vote. Recently he teamed with Mauricio Macri to create a new center-right coalition called Republican Proposal (PRO), which tacitly supported his unsuccessful second bid to the presidency in the 2007 presidential election. Lopez Murphy did poorly, gaining just 1% of the vote, although PRO did better in provincial and congressional elections.
He is married with three children. In the media Lopez Murphy is often referred to as "the Bulldog", a nickname he has come to embrace himself. Pagina/12 (1/9/2005) . La Nacion (9/16/2005)
