George Moore Pritchard (January 4, 1886, near Mars Hill, North Carolina – April 24, 1955, in Asheville, North Carolina) was a lawyer, Republican politician, and one-term U.S. representative from North Carolina. He was the son of Senator Jeter C. Pritchard.

In 1928, Pritchard was elected to the 71st United States Congress from North Carolina's 10th congressional district. In 1930, he did not run for re-election, but instead ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate against Democrat Josiah W. Bailey. All his later attempts at political comebacks—running for Governor of North Carolina in 1940 and 1948, and for the U.S. House in 1952—were unsuccessful.
