He may be dead, but Dennis Hof scored 69.02 percent in Tuesday's vote against Democratic candidate Lesia Romanov, at 30.98 percent, to win the assembly seat representing rural southern Nye County, official records showed.

"They will feel much more comfortable casting the ballot for him, knowing there will be another Republican to replace him", he said shortly after the pimp's passing. Officials have still not determined a cause of death, although foul play is not suspected.

"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.

Hof, who starred in the HBO reality television show "Cathouse" about the prostitutes working at one of his establishments, was running as a Donald Trump-style Republican.

Former NBA star Lamar Odom was discovered unconscious at the same brothel several years ago but survived.

Hof ran for office in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost the race. This year, he ran as a Republican and earned backing from former Trump advisor Roger Stone and tax-cut activist Grover Norquist. They're banned in counties that contain Las Vegas and Reno, and the state does not publicize how many are open. This summer, he ousted an incumbent Republican lawmaker in a primary election, celebrating at an election night party with "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss. Most owners keep a lower profile than Hof did. He said this was the best year ever.

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.

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

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