Levi Johnston To Run for Mayor Of Wasilla, Alaska For His Reality Show

Levi Johnston is bouncing back from his second breakup with Bristol Palin by running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

Johnston is currently shopping a reality series called 'Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office', which will chronicle his life as he runs for mayor of Wasilla and raises Tripp, his son with Bristol. Sarah Palin held the same position before she became governor of Alaska.

"The docu-soap will follow the ever controversial, headline making, matinee idol, handsome father of one as he embarks on a run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska," says a statement by veteran reality production company Stone and Co.

"The series will chronicle a 'no-holds-barred' period in Levi’s tumultuous life; co-raising his son Tripp, looking for love, and taking care of business for his fellow Wasillians."

"He will give us a real inside look into who he is as a father, a skilled hunter, an avid dirt biker, and of course his journey down the road of small town politics -- right after he gets his high school diploma."

Johnston tells 'Variety' that it was the producers' idea to add the run for mayor to the show.

"But the more I think about it and look into it, I think there's a possibility we can make it happen," Johnston says of his political aspirations. "It's something that I want to do."

"It's hard to figure me out," he says. "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."

"I know it is love and hate right now," he says of his reputation, "but we're trying to flip that around."

Wasilla is a relatively small town and its current mayor, Verne E. Rupright, won the seat with 466 votes -- less than 100 from his nearest competitor. However, the mayoral chair isn't up for election until 2012.
