United States election: Dead brothel owner wins landslide in Nevada

Brothel owner Dennis Hof posthumously wins Nevada assembly seat

"There are a lot of Republicans who were uncomfortable voting for Dennis because of the nature of his business, and they now know that he is not the one who will be serving", campaign manager Chuck Muth said in a statement to Reuters. According to reports, he was found by porn actor Ron Jeremy and a prostitute at the brothel after spending the previous four days celebrating his birthday with well-known people in the sex industry and political world.

Deceased Nevada brothel owner Dennis Hof (R) won a seat in the state legislature by a landslide on Tuesday.

Chuck Muth, Hof's campaign manager, said on Twitter that Jeremy found Hof's body when he went to wake him up in the morning.

Besides his notoriety as a brothel owner, Hof wrote a book called "The Art of the Pimp" and was seen on the HBO adult reality show "Cathouse", which followed the lives of brothel workers.

Hof owned a handful of brothels in Nevada, the only state that allows them to legally operate. He defeated Democratic school administrator and political newcomer Lesia Romanov in a heavily Republican rural district.

Under Nevada law, Republican county officials will appoint someone to serve the term in the Assembly to which Hof was elected. Nye County encompasses the largest swath of the district, so its commissioner will have the biggest say, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

He ran for office in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost.

This year, he ran as a Republican and earned backing from Trump associate Roger Stone and tax-cut activist Grover Norquist.

But much of Nevada's establishment GOP shunned him.

Nevada's 36th Assembly District has always been a Republican-held seat.

He said Hof appeared to have died in his sleep.

The sprawling assembly district that touches both California and Utah and includes the Nevada National Security Site where nuclear weapons were once tested.
