Elizabeth Cunningham & Cal Cunningham
Cunningham met his wife Elizabeth in 1997 and the couple is parents of two children. Her wife has quite often openly praised her husband’s achievements and supported her. Talking about how she saw his passion to serve others when they just met, she said in an at-home interview with Loretta Boniti, “We knew that whatever he would be asked to do, that he had a lot of skills that he could offer,” adding, “And it was a time for everybody to step up and do what they could do.

Whether that was in Lexington or whether, as he was eventually asked to do, in Iraq and Afghanistan and Fort Bragg. It wasn’t easy every part of it, all of the time, but certainly ended up being the right thing for him to do.
She reportedly sent a personal email with an endorsement for her husband in 2010 which read, “I’ve been married to Cal for nine years, and I know he’s in this race for all the right reasons,” she began. “I couldn’t be prouder of Cal’s record as a fighter for the people and causes he believes in. In the State Senate, he fought for strong schools, clean air, job training, and government reform. In Iraq, he fought contractor crimes and fraud that harmed the mission and wasted taxpayer funds.
Now he’s ready to fight just as hard for North Carolina families in our nation’s capital.” On February 14, 2020, Cunningham tweeted a photo of his family and wrote: “Voted early with Elizabeth and Caroline—who cast her first-ever ballot. What a special morning!”

Cal Cunningham & Arlene Guzman Affair
Text messages between Todd, 36, and Cunningham, 47, were leaked on the night of October 1 by NationalFile.com. Todd is married to veteran Jeremy Todd, 36, and lives in southern California. The couple has two children together. The National File report includes pictures of text messages that were allegedly sent between Todd and Cunningham.
Arlene Guzman Todd is the wife of Jeremy Todd and the woman accused of sexting North Carolina Democratic Senate candidate Cal Cunningham. As per the report, Guzman “is the female paramour of candidate Cunningham,” according to a friend of Guzman Todd’s in North Carolina who spoke with the outlet’s source. The extramarital activity with the wife of a fellow veteran came to light as photos spilled details of text messages, where they confessed about kissing each other and more.
“Would make my day to roll over and kiss you about now,” Cunningham expressed in one text message. In another text, Guzman reiterated the same sentiment and said, “I have flexibility this month — done with school, training, big RFPs, etc. So the only thing I want on my to-do list is you.” In response to that, Cunningham said that “sounds so hot and so fun!” The report also details how Cunningham called Guzman “historically sexy,” imagined kissing her, and said he had been dreaming “of our time together.” Not just that, the two plan to “make up an excuse for the fam and ditch the staffer” so they could meet and, in Guzman Todd’s words, “kiss a lot.”
