Play 'Commander' envisions gay presidential candidate

A crowded field of presidential candidates is about to get a little more so.

Meet Rhode Island Gov. Ned Worley, a former college professor whose widowed mother, a poor Portuguese immigrant, made him stick to his studies so he could achieve something big in life.

"Washington politicians have forgotten this, but I never will: America is a promise to … every one of us who struggles, strives and, with a little bit of help, succeeds," he says. "I'm here to tell you: I will keep America's promise."

Worley might sound like a standard public office-holder, but he's gay. With a longtime partner, too.

Not your average presidential campaign, then....
