Dead man wins election in the US

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

Arguably the single biggest victor in the US Midterms is a brothel owner who has been elected as a congressman for Nevada.

Dennis Hof, owner of the Nevada Love Ranch brothel, won the race for Nevada's 36th Assembly District, despite dying a month ago while celebrating his 72nd birthday.

He may be dead, but Dennis Hof scored 69.02% in Tuesday's vote against Democratic candidate Lesia Romanov, at 30.98%, to win the assembly seat representing rural southern Nye County, official records showed. County officials say they will appoint a Republican to Hof's seat. 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 also ran for the state Legislature in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost the race. He had spent the four previous days partying with notables from the adult film industry and political world, like Jeremy and Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff who was convicted of criminal contempt of court but pardoned by Trump.

"They will feel much more comfortable casting the ballot for him knowing there will be another Republican to replace him". Odom entered a coma but survived.

Hof was running for a seat in the Nevada state assembly as a pro-Trump Republican. "People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody that is honest in office".

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.

In the end, he won in a complete landslide, taking around 70% of the vote.

Hof had nicknamed himself the "Trump from Pahrump", after the town where he lived in Nevada.
