Cindy Banyai (Candidate D-FL19) announces separation from husband

For Immediate Release

Fort Myers - Personal announcement from Cindy Banyai.

I have had a lot of jobs throughout my life. I am a mother, a small business owner, and a candidate for Congress. Like millions of other women in America, I have to manage a delicate balance between my family, my business, as well as my campaign.

Like all families, we’ve had our fair share of struggles. Unfortunately, my husband and I are separating as we prepare for our divorce.

This will no doubt be a difficult time for myself, my children, and our entire family. While I understand I am a public figure, due to my run for Congress, I hope that my opponents and the media will respect the privacy of myself and my family during this difficult time.

Female candidates are often subjected to unfair double-standard in politics. I’ve lost count of the times that I have been asked who is taking care of your children or is your husband ok with you running? These questions would never be asked of a male candidate.

I fully plan to continue this campaign because the stakes are simply too high to pack it in now. I am sure that my ability to be a mother and be a candidate will be questioned, but that is just the unfortunate reality of being a woman in American politics.


No media inquiries regarding this are being accepted at this time.
