Mr Hof ran as an outspoken Republican for Nevada's Assembly District 36 before his death at the age of 72. And as tragic as his death was, Hof campaign manager Chuck Muth previously indicated his boss's passing might actually help his electoral chances.

Hof was running for a seat in the Nevada state assembly as a pro-Trump Republican.

Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite BunnyRanch legal brothel, has won his race for the Nevada state legislature, despite his death last month. Former NBA star Lamar Odom was discovered unconscious at the same brothel several years ago but survived. He continued the festivities at his brothel with reality television personality Flavor Flav and porn-film actor Ron Jeremy, who found Hof dead the next morning.

Hof ran for office in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost the race.

He upended Nevada politics this summer when he ousted an incumbent Republican lawmaker in a primary, celebrating at an election night party with "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss. Nye County encompasses the largest swath of the district, so its commissioner will have the biggest say, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The state doesn't publicize how many are open, and most owners keep a much lower profile than Hof did.

In a freaky and unusual set of circumstance, a Republican candidate has been elected to the state assembly of Nevada - despite having died last month.

Hof's campaign for District 36 - composed of Nye, Lincoln and Clark Counties - was marked by publicity stunts and billboard advertising that broadcast his pledges of repealing taxes and protecting gun rights, according to the USA magazine The New Yorker. Because the district is located in three counties, three candidates could potentially be identified to take his place before a final selection is determined.

He said Mr Hof "died quietly in his sleep" at Love Ranch - one of the brothels he operated in Crystal, Nevada.
