Dead brothel owner Dennis Hof wins election in Nevada, U.S.

Dead brothel owner Dennis Hof wins election in Nevada, U.S.”

A Nevada brothel owner and reality TV star who died last month after fashioning himself as a Donald Trump-style Republican candidate has won a heavily GOP state legislative district.

However, his name remained on the ballot in accordance with Nevada's legislation, as the deadline for changing the roster had passed.

Democrat Lesia Romanov was left with no living Republican opposition in the race for Nevada's 36th Assembly District - but lost.

Patrons of a Nevada brothel operated by Mr. Dennis Hof seemed intent on keeping his memory alive as they voted massively for him in the Tuesday mid-term elections, giving him 53 percent of the total votes cast.

Hof's campaign manager, Chuck Muth, tweeted: "I just confirmed with Nye County sheriff's deputy that Dennis Hof passed away this morning".

Arguably the single biggest victor in the US Midterms is a brothel owner who has been elected as a congressman for Nevada. This October, Hof was found dead at Love Ranch, one of his legal brothels, after his 72nd birthday party, which featured guests such as legendary porn star Ron Jeremy and potential Republican Senate candidate Joe Arpaio.

Muth said Hof had apparently 'died quietly in his sleep'.

Police did not suspect foul play at the time of his death and no one who was with him the night before noticed any signs of ill health.

Hof's campaign was based on deeply conservative ideals including a hard-line policy on immigration and expansion of gun rights. But he also stumped for non-traditional issues, including an effort to make the brothel industry more mainstream. "Nobody ever would do that", Hof said then.

Hof, who starred in the HBO reality television show "Cathouse" about the prostitutes working at one of his establishments, was running for a seat in the Nevada state assembly as a pro-Trump Republican. "People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody that is honest in office".
