>> Denise Hof is the Trump of Pahrump.>> He was well known for many reasons. Owner of the Bunny Ranch brothel, reality show star, and a Republican vying for a seat in the Nevada State Legislature. Denise Hof, a pro-Trump candidate, and America's best known pimp died on Tuesday.
He was 72. Porn star Ron Jeremy says he found Hof dead at one of his brothels hours after they celebrated his birthday.>> This thing is such a shock, like out of nowhere. I'm looking at this guy that'd been my friend for 25 years on the bed. Stiff, cold, eyes at half-mast, is like what the heck.
>> Hof's campaign manager says it appears he died in his sleep. In June, Hof won the nominating contest for a state assembly seat in Nevada. Despite his background as a brothel owner, he was backed by evangelical Christians. Who say that voted for for him because they believed he would clean up politics.
His rise reflecting changes in electoral norms that have upended American politics since Trump took office.
