(Washington, D.C.) - Chrissy Gephardt, daughter of former presidential candidate Richard Gephardt (D-MO), will announce her candidacy for "the American Candidate" tomorrow, Tuesday, June 8th at the Phoenix Park Hotel, 520 North Capitol St. NW at 6:30 p.m.

"American Candidate" will attempt to identify one individual who has the qualifications and qualities to be President of the United States. This summer, "American Candidate" will debut with 12 contestants from all walks of life. Over the course of 10 weeks, candidates will face off in 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. Week-by-week, the original pool of candidates will be winnowed down. The final episode will be a showdown between the remaining two candidates, and one person will emerge victorious -- the "American Candidate."
