JUNEAU, ALASKA -- Levi Johnston might be following in Sarah Palin's footsteps.

Johnston's manager, Tank Jones, confirms a report in Variety magazine that Johnston is planning to run for city office in his hometown of Wasilla as part of a TV reality show.

Wasilla is where Palin got her start in politics, moving up from city council to mayor before being elected Alaska's governor in 2006.

Jones says that Johnston is serious about a run, either for mayor or city council.

Asked whether he believes people will take the run seriously, Jones said, with TV cameras rolling: "People questioned Jesus Christ, so I definitely don't care about these mere mortals questioning Levi Johnston."

Johnston, 20, is the father of Palin's grandson and the recently off-again flame to her daughter Bristol.
