WASHINGTON, June 8 (UPI) -- Chrissy Gephardt, the daughter of former House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt, D-Mo., said Tuesday she is announcing a reality presidential candidacy.

The national lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender outreach director on her father's 2004 presidential campaign, Gephardt is making her announcement as part of the cable network Showtime's new political reality series, The American Candidate.

The show will attempt to identify one individual from among several contestants who has the qualifications and qualities to be the American Candidate through a series of competitions.

During a 10-week period, contestants will face a series of challenges designed to test their presidential mettle and to show viewers what really goes on in the making of a presidential candidate.
