Edward A. Buchanan (born October 19, 1967 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida) is an attorney from Torrington, Wyoming, who is a former member and the past Speaker of the Wyoming House of Representatives. He was succeeded as Speaker on January 8, 2013, by Tom Lubnau of Gillette in Campbell County. Before his Speakership, he had been the Wyoming House Majority Leader.
A Republican, Buchanan represented House District 4 from 2003 until 2012, first in Goshen County and then from Platte and Converse counties.  Buchanan ran for Wyoming Secretary of State in 2014, narrowly losing the contest despite being outspent nearly four to one. After Secretary of State Ed Murray resigned, Governor Matt Mead appointed Buchanan to serve the remaining 10 months of Murray's term. 
Buchanan moved to Wyoming as a child and grew up farming and ranching on the Bar KW ranch in Goshen County. Buchanan holds both bachelor's and law degrees from the University of Wyoming at Laramie. He also received a master's degree in public administration from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, while serving in the United States Air Force. He and his wife Amber have two girls and two boys.
