According to the Associated Press, Hoff then beat Democratic educator Lesia Romanov on November 6 in the race for Nevada's 36th Assembly District.

Steve Marcus/REUTERS/NewscomVoters in Nevada's Assembly District 36 must have really not liked the Democrat.

If Hof is declared the victor in his district, the seat will be declared vacant and a replacement will be appointed by three commissioners of the district's three counties, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The Love Ranch brothel that Hof owned became notorious as the place where former Laker Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015.

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.

"They will feel much more comfortable casting the ballot for him knowing there will be another Republican to replace him", he added.

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

Harry Kane: Tottenham will challenge for Premier League title in new stadium
The Spurs boss praised the spirit of his players after four games in nine days. "The team was fighting and made a big effort". Spurs were not going to complain and all eyes are now on the clash with the Serie A side, who drew at home with Barcelona.

Hof died at age 72 less than a month ago at the Love Ranch South in Crystal. The day before his death, he had enjoyed a rally and birthday party that was attended by, amongst others, famous porn star Ron Jeremy.

Hof died last month, soon after celebrating his 72nd birthday by having sex with one of his prostitute employees.

"I know Republicans in Nevada got massacred tonight, but my man Dennis Hof crushed his opponent from the great beyond in AD-36 & we crushed the anti-brothel initiative in Lyon County by about 80%", Muth wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Hof had been running as a pro-Donald Trump Republican candidate.

Initial estimates suggested the deceased Hof won almost 70% of the vote.

The former brothel owner, who described himself as the "Trump of Pahrump" (a town in Nevada), was expected to win in the general election after upsetting incumbent Assemblyman James Oscarson.
