The father of Sarah Palin's grandson is planning to run for mayor of his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.

The manager for 20-year-old Levi Johnston confirms the political bid is part of an upcoming reality TV show.

Wasilla is where Palin started her political career. Johnston is the father of Palin's grandson, Tripp, with her daughter Bristol. The two are no longer involved.

Wasilla's next mayoral election is scheduled for next year.
