Dead Brothel Owner, Reality TV Star Wins Nevada Assembly Seat

Dead Brothel Owner, Reality TV Star Wins Nevada Assembly Seat

Dennis Hof, owner of the Nevada Love Ranch brothel, won the race for Nevada's 36th Assembly District, despite dying a month ago while celebrating his 72nd birthday.

His campaign manager said his death likely made him even more of an attractive vote for those who otherwise wouldn't have cast their ballot in his favor given that the state's Republican Party will now fill the seat.

During the poll declaration, Hof had 68.3% of the vote to defeat his Democrat rival Lesia Romanov who polled 31.7%.

Hof had nicknamed himself the "Trump from Pahrump", after the town where he lived in Nevada.

"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.

He said Mr Hof "died quietly in his sleep" at Love Ranch - one of the brothels he operated in Crystal, Nevada.

Schumer says new AG must protect Mueller probe
He took credit for reversing a recent rise in violent crime and for taking a hardline stance on illegal immigration and gangs. Later, Schumer tweeted that the new acting AG, Whitaker, should recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

Hof, 72, was found dead on October 16 by adult film star Ron Jeremy after a weekend of parties celebrating Hof's birthday.

Nevada Police, however, said they did not suspect foul play at the time of his death and no one that was with him the night before noticed any signs of ill health.

Hof ran on a platform based on deeply conservative ideals, including expansion of gun rights and a hard-line policy on immigration.

Around 20 brothels operate in Nevada - the only USA state where prostitution is legal. But he also stumped for non-traditional issues, including an effort to make the brothel industry more mainstream. "Trump is the trailblazer, he is the Christopher Columbus of honest politics".

"This really is the Trump movement", Hof said.

If Hof is declared the victor in his district, the seat will be declared vacant and a replacement will be appointed by three commissioners of the district's three counties, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
