Dennis Hof wins Nevada state legislative race after death

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

County officials will appoint a Republican to take Hof’s place in the state Assembly. He was found dead Oct. 16 after a weekend of parties celebrating his 72nd birthday. Officials are still determining his cause of death, but they don’t suspect foul play.

He had fashioned himself as a Donald Trump-style Republican candidate in a heavily GOP district.

Hof owned a handful of brothels in the only state that allows them to legally operate.
