Levi Johnston Planning Run for Palin's Old Job

Monday, 09 Aug 2010 09:49 PM


LOS ANGELES – Levi Johnston is set to follow in the footsteps of his ex-fiancee's mother -- Sarah Palin -- by attempting to become mayor of the Alaskan town of Wasilla, it was reported.

Johnston, who was last week dumped by Palin's daughter Bristol, is planning to run for the job which launched the political career of the 2008 Republican vice-presidential pick.

"Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office," a TV reality show, is to center on Johnston's fame as the father of Sarah Palin's grandson Tripp, Variety reported.

Johnston will use his notoriety to run for the Wasilla City Hall, while simultaneously trying to pursue a career in Hollywood.

Johnston admitted he was skeptical about launching his mayoral campaign.

"But the more I think about it and look into it, I think there's a possibility we can make it happen," Johnston said of the mayoral campaign, which will not take place until 2012. "It's something that I want to do."

Johnston -- who described himself as "half red-neck, half Hollywood" -- told Variety he hoped the show would clear up misconceptions about him.

"It's hard to figure me out," he said. "You've got to follow me around. I'm very different. I lead a crazy life. But it will basically be both worlds, my life in Hollywood and back home, the real country boy that I am."
