Levi Johnston Says He Hasn't Decided If He'll Run For Mayor As Democrat Or Republican

Levi Johnston says he hasn’t decided whether he’ll run for mayor of his Alaska hometown as a Democrat or a Republican.

Johnston, the father of Sarah Palin’s grandson, plans to run for the office in Wasilla as part of a reality TV show.

He said on “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday that he’s been talking to residents about his candidacy and is working on building a platform, although he didn’t offer specifics.

Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, served as mayor of Wasilla from 1996-2002. She was elected governor in 2006.

Johnston says the appearance on Maher’s HBO show would be his last interview for a while.
