JUNEAU, Alaska — Levi Johnston won’t be mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, anytime soon.

Johnston toyed with running as part of a reality show but isn’t an official candidate for the Oct. 4 election. His attorney says Johnston is too busy to run. Butler declined to give specifics but says Johnston has a book and tour scheduled next month.

Johnston was thrust into the national spotlight in 2008, when Sarah Palin was running for vice president. Johnston was the boyfriend of Palin’s daughter Bristol, who was pregnant at the time with the couple’s child.

The couple has split.

Johnston went on to pose partially nude for Playgirl, and has said his book will set the record straight about the Palin family, with whom he’s had a rocky relationship.
