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

Dennis Hof

According to the Huffington Post, Hof died unexpectedly in mid-October, but his name wasn't scratched off the ballot under Nevada law.

A brothel-owning, evangelical Christian-backed Republican candidate, who died last month, won his race for the Nevada state legislature late on Tuesday, according to state election officials.

Hof defeated Democratic challenger Lesia Romanov.

Despite the paradoxical outcome, there are procedures in place to ensure that when Hof's posthumous victory is confirmed, local county commissioners may appoint another Republican to fill his seat.

His campaign manager, Chuck Muth, announced the death on Twitter the following day, stating that he had been found unresponsive by Jeremy himself.

His campaign manager actually seemed to admit at one stage that Hof's death might have improved his voting performance.

She moved into more emotional territory as the song progressed, holding back tears while singing about her future wedding day. On today's episode of Ellen , Grande performed the song live for the first time.

Nevada's 36th Assembly District sits in the southern portion of the state, and includes portions of Nye, Lincoln and of Clark counties.

The budding politician was found deceased after a rally with porn star Ron Jeremy and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

"This really is the Trump movement", Hof said in the interview at Moonlite BunnyRanch, his brothel near his home in Pahrump.

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. "People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody that is honest in office".

The strip club owner, who ran five legal brothels in Nevada, styled himself as America's best-known pimp after appearing on TV show Cathouse.

After Hof won the June nominating contest for the state Assembly seat, some evangelicals in his district said they had voted for him because they believed he would clean up politics and not be beholden to special-interest groups and their money.
