Robert Joseph "Bob" Miller (born March 30, 1945 in Chicago, Illinois) was the 26th Governor of the U.S. state of Nevada. 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 one of the first Clark County District Attorneys in modern history to win re-election). He served at this post until 1986.

He became Lieutenant Governor of Nevada in January 1987. In January 1989 Miller became Governor when his predecessor, Richard Bryan, resigned to become a U. S. Senator. Miller served as Governor until January 1999. With a ten-year tenure he is Nevada's longest-serving governor.

After leaving office, he worked for the law firm of Jones Vargas in its Las Vegas office until 2005. During the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries, he and his wife Sandy Miller endorsed Hillary Clinton.[1]

Miller is married and has three children, including Ross Miller, who was elected as Nevada Secretary of State in 2006. His daughter Corrine, 31, lives in New York and his daughter Megan, 19, is a freshman at Santa Clara University. He currently lives in Henderson, Nevada.
