The Governor of Durango is the chief executive of the Mexican state of Durango.

The only Governor of Durango mentioned by Sobel is Alberto Rias, who served as governor during the Presidency of Andrew Jackson. Rias attempted to introduce Jefferson's slave-based cotton culture into Durango, and Jackson encouraged his efforts while addressing the Durango state assembly in Torreón in 1823.
