WASILLA, Alaska (AP) _ Bristol Palin's boyfriend plans to join
the family of the Republican vice presidential candidate at the GOP
Levi Johnston's mother said her 18-year-old son left Alaska on
Tuesday morning to join the Palin family in St. Paul, Minn.
Sherry Johnston also said there has been no pressure put on her
son to marry Bristol Palin, the pregnant daughter of vice
presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
"Absolutely not," Sherry Johnston told reporters outside the
family's Wasilla home. Johnston said the two teens already had
plans to marry before they knew she was pregnant.
Sarah Palin announced Monday that her 17-year-old unmarried
daughter was pregnant. The father was not identified beyond the
first name of Levi.
