George Bradley (1833–1879) was a Minnesota politician and a former member of the Minnesota House of Representatives. He represented District 7, which at that time included portions of Scott County just southwest of the Twin Cities.

Bradley was elected to the position of Speaker Pro Tem of the Minnesota House of Representatives on December 22, 1857, when then-Speaker John S. Watrous took leave to attend to personal business. When, due to Watrous' prolonged absence, the Speaker's chair was declared vacant on March 12, 1858, Bradley was elected Speaker in his own right.[1]
