Nevada Voters Elected a Dead Brothel Owner to State Assembly

Dennis Hof died Oct. 16
Hof joined the Republican Party after President Donald Trump was elected and mimicked the president's tone in his own campaign, the Los Angeles Times reported.
"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 Muthsaid in a statement to Reuters.
This set the expectations of Hof's campaign manager, Chuck Muth, high; as he suggested voters would still opt for the deceased Republican ahead of the General Elections.
Dennis Hof, who ran as a Republican, defeated Democrat Lesia Romanov on Tuesday in the race for the state's 36th Assembly District, a heavily Republican district.
Hof - the star of HBO's "Cathouse" series who Republican consultant Roger Stone had called "Trump from Pahrump" - had ousted a sitting Republican member of Nevada's State Assembly in a primary and was the favorite to win a seat in Carson City in November's election.
Hof died at age 72 less than a month ago at the Love Ranch South in Crystal.
His body was discovered by porn actor Ron Jeremy and a prostitute.
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.
Hof, 72, was found dead on October 16 by adult film star Ron Jeremy after a weekend of parties celebrating Hof's birthday.
Cormier Makes History, Defends Heavyweight Belt
Immediately after Cormier's maiden 265lbs title defence, attention turned to the prospect of him have a trilogy fight with Jones. Jones has ruled out a trilogy, and Cormier's next challenger will surely give him a better fight than Lewis.
Bonus link: ReasonTV interviewed Hof back in 2014 on prostitution, libertarianism, and more.
He said an anti-brothel push and regulatory problems he faced this year needed political retribution.
He said Hof appeared to have died in his sleep.
The legal pimp had also been accused of sexual assault on at least four occasions.

U.S. midterm elections: A blue wave or a red rally?
Polling suggests the Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree. But Brookings Institution expert John Hudak said it is also clear that Trump is a major issue for both parties this year.
