72 year old god fearing brothel owner and Republican candidate Dennis Hof, who died last month won his race for the Nevada state legislature during the U.S midterms.
He defeated Democratic candidate Lesia Romanov in the race for Nevada’s 36th Assembly District, earning an overwhelming 68 per cent of the vote.
County officials said they would appoint a replacement candidate from the same party for his seat.
Mr. Hof, nicknamed “Trump from Pahrump”, presented himself as an American pimp, was a strip club owner who ran multiple brothels.
The Nye County Sheriff’s Office said Mr. Hof was found dead last month at one of his properties in Crystal, Nevada. It was not immediately clear what caused his death.
Friends found him dead in his sleep when they went to wake him for a meeting hours after his 72nd birthday party, according to reports.
The three-time divorced author of The Art Of The Pimp, owned a strip club and five legal brothels in Nevada, the only US state with legalized prostitution.
Well people, this may be the most obvious sign that the Democrats need to organize better, and cannot count on simply beating Republicans by stating that they are anti-Trump.
