Guy W. Millner (born February 16, 1936) is an American multi-millionaire businessman who ran as a Republican for Governor of Georgia in 1994, United States Senator from Georgia in 1996 and Governor of Georgia in 1998, losing all three races.
Millner came closest to victory in 1994, winning 48% of the vote against incumbent Governor Zell Miller after defeating four other candidates in the Republican primary election. His subsequent defeats were by increasingly large margins. He lost to state secretary of state and former Carter Veterans Affairs Administrator Max Cleland for the United States Senate in 1996 after narrowly defeating Johnny Isakson for the Republican nomination. His final defeat, at the hands of State Representative Roy Barnes for governor in 1998, was by a margin of 53% to 44%. He has not sought office again.
Millner's campaigns were largely self-financed and he remains a major financial backer of Republican candidates.
