Bobby Lynn Brantley (born April 6, 1948) is an American Republican politician from the State of Florida. He served one term as 13th Lieutenant Governor of Florida, from 1987 to 1991.[2]

Prior to his election as lieutenant governor, Brantley served in the Florida House of Representatives from Central Florida. In 1986, he won the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor, defeating Marilyn Evans-Jones, Betty Easley, and Tom Bush to become the running-mate for Tampa Mayor Bob Martinez, the Republican nominee for governor. In the general election, Martinez and Brantley defeated the Democratic ticket, consisting of State Rep. Steve Pajcic for governor and State Sen. Frank Mann for lieutenant governor, by 54.56% to 45.44%.

Brantley did not seek reelection in 1990, and retired from political office in 1991. As of 2011 he is a consultant and lobbyist at one of Florida's oldest law firms, Shutts & Bowen.[3]
