Robert Lofton Brown (January 30, 1950 – December 8, 2011) was a Democratic member of the Georgia State Senate, representing the 26th District. He was first elected in an August 1991 special election and served until June 2011, when he resigned to run for Mayor of Macon, Georgia. He was elected by his fellow Democrats as Minority Leader in 2004 and served in that position until his resignation.

Death[edit]

On December 8, 2011, Brown's body was found in his Macon home. The local coroner revealed that Brown died from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.[2]
