George Duval Buffett (November 19, 1928 – October 13, 2012) was an American politician who was a Republican member of the New Mexico House of Representatives from 1979 to 2002. Buffett attended University of New Mexico and was a businessman. He died in 2012. He was an arch-conservative state representative, owner of Buffett's Candy and cousin of Warren Buffett.

He served as a State Representative for 24 years (1979-2002). He was a fiscal conservative. He started writing a political newsletter, called Buffett's Bullets, to educate and to provide insight into the inner workings of politics in NM from 1989 through 2008 and had a mailing list that grew from 150 to over 10,000 people from across the state.
