Robert Joseph "Bob" Miller (born March 30, 1945) is an American politician. He was the 26th Governor of the U.S. state of Nevada from 1989 to 1999. He is a member of the Democratic Party.

Bob Miller's family moved from Chicago, Illinois to Las Vegas, Nevada, and he graduated from Bishop Gorman High School in 1963 with honors. He graduated from the Santa Clara University in 1967, earning a degree in Political Science. Miller received his J.D. degree from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, California.

From 1967 to 1973, Miller served in the U.S. Army Reserves and later in the U.S. Air Force Reserves. At the same time he served as Clark County Deputy District Attorney, from 1971 to 1973. In 1979 Miller was elected to office of Clark County District Attorney, and was re-elected in 1982, becoming the first Clark County District Attorney to win re-election. He served at this post until 1986. He was the President of the National District Attorney's Association in 1984.

He became Lieutenant Governor of Nevada for a four-year term on January 5, 1987. On January 3, 1989, Miller became Governor when his predecessor, Richard Bryan, resigned to become a U.S. Senator. Miller served as Governor until January 4, 1999. With a ten-year tenure he is Nevada's longest-serving governor, he was elected to two full four-year terms in 1990 and 1994, but lifetime term limits prevented him from seeking the governorship again in 1998. He was Chairman of the National Governors Association during 1997-1998.

After leaving office, he worked for the law firm of Jones Vargas in its Las Vegas office from 1999-2005. During the 2008 presidential campaign he was the co-chair of Hillary Clinton's Governors Council.

Miller presently serves on the board of directors of Wynn Resorts and International Game Technology. He is the Principal of Robert J. Miller Consulting, which provides business to government and business to business advice and assistance. He is also a Senior Advisor with Dutko Worldwide, a bipartisan government relations company headquartered in Washington D.C.

Miller's autobiography "Son of a Gambling Man" is scheduled to be released by Thomas Dunne Books in 2012.

Miller is married and has three children, including Ross Miller, who was elected as Nevada Secretary of State in 2006, Corrine Liebe who lives in New York with her husband and Leroy and Bea, and Megan who attends Santa Clara University. He currently lives in Henderson, Nevada.
