InfoCharles L. Sullivan (August 20, 1924 – April 18, 1979) was an American politician, attorney and military pilot. He was the 24th 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.

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. 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. In 1963, Sullivan ran for Governor and lost.
