Andrew Jackson Transue (January 12, 1903 – June 24, 1995) was a politician from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Transue was born in Clarksville, Michigan and attended the local schools. He graduated from the Detroit College of Law, LL.B., 1926 and J.D., 1968. He was admitted to the bar in 1926 and commenced the practice of law in Detroit in 1926 and Flint, Michigan in 1927. He also served as prosecuting attorney of Genesee County in 1933 and 1937.

In 1936, Transue defeated incumbent Republican William W. Blackney to be elected as a Democrat from Michigan's 6th congressional district to the 75th United States Congress, serving from January 3, 1937 to January 3, 1939. He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1938, losing to Blackney.
