Libertarian Senate Candidate Receives Endorsement From His Former Commanding Officer

by Chuck Donovan

For Immediate Release

ATLANTA, GA – August 24, 2010 -The Donovan For Senate campaign has received another significant endorsement.  Whereas most endorsements are from interest groups and fellow politicians, this one is closer to home and much more meaningful.  Chuck Donovan’s former Commanding Officer wrote his recommendation to the voters of Georgia, encouraging them to vote Chuck into office as their new Senator.

Colonel David L. Percy, USMC (Retired) was the Commanding Officer of Marine Corps Fighter/Attack Squadron VMFA-451.  Chuck served in the U.S. Marines from 1980 to 1986 flying the F-4 Phantom.  Col. Percy wrote:

“Chuck Donovan is one of those people with the vision and conviction needed … NOW!”
“As one with whom I flew, Chuck, ‘had my back’ years ago; today he “has the backs” of the people of Georgia. No better individual could be on your side in times like these when the going is toughest.”
“Twenty five years ago Chuck Donovan swore before me ‘ … to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and domestic … !’ He has never disappointed that oath … or me.”
“I commend him as one who’ll absolutely ‘do Georgia proud’ in representing the great state in the nation’s capital. Selfless, unwavering in moral courage – Chuck Donovan isn’t going to apologize for standing strong in defense of all we hold dear in America. Defending our Constitution, Chuck will be-as he was for me – Georgia’s wingman. Every fighter pilot will tell you; you trust your life to your wingman. I did. Georgia should. Chuck is all that … and more.”
The full letter has been posted on Chuck’s campaign website,

Chuck states he is very proud to receive Colonel Percy’s endorsement.  As the campaign season comes to a head in November, Chuck Donovan will continue to promote himself as the candidate advocating fiscal responsibility, respect for civil liberties, and free market economics.
