Hof ran as a pro-Donald Trump Republican in a district that heavily supported the president in the 2016 election. According to state law, county officials will now appoint a fellow Republican who also resides in the district to take Hof's seat.

The strip club owner, who ran five legal brothels in Nevada, during his campaign, dubbed himself the "Trump from Pahrump" in reference to the town where he lived in Nevada.

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.

Dennis Hof, self-proclaimed pimp whose Donald Trump-inspired run for the state legislature drew national attention, was found dead on October 16.

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.

Besides his notoriety as a brothel owner, Hof wrote a book called "The Art of the Pimp" and was seen on the HBO adult reality show "Cathouse", which followed the lives of brothel workers.

His body was discovered by porn actor Ron Jeremy and a prostitute.

Hof's Love Ranch brothel about an hour outside of Las Vegas, the same brothel where National Basketball Association player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015, is where Jeremy and a prostitute found Hof's body. As a result, Nevada Republicans encouraged people to vote for him anyway. They're banned in counties that contain Las Vegas and Reno, and the state does not publicize how many are open.

Bonus link: ReasonTV interviewed Hof back in 2014 on prostitution, libertarianism, and more.

Hof was accused of sexual assault at least four times, most recently in September.

Lt. David Boruchowitz with the Nye County Sheriff's Office confirmed Hof's death, but said the department is sharing no additional details.
