Charles L. Sullivan (August 20, 1924 – April 18, 1979) was an American politician, attorney and military pilot. He was Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi from 1968 to 1972 and a General in the United States Air National Guard. An Air National Guard facility in Jackson, Mississippi is named after him.[1]

An attorney from Clarksdale, Mississippi, Sullivan ran in Texas for President of the United States in the 1960 presidential election as the candidate of the Constitution Party.[2] He and Merritt Curtis (who was a Presidential Candidate in other states) received 18,162 votes in Texas, the only state where he was on the ballot, or 0.79% of the Texas popular vote.[3] In 1963, Sullivan ran for Governor and lost.[2]

Sullivan was killed in a plane crash in 1979 at the age of 54[4][5].
