The party of family values selected a Nevada pimp to represent Republicans on the November ticket for state Assembly – a man who owns several legal brothels and was featured in the HBO adult reality series "Cathouse”, according to the Associated Press.
Dennis Hof won the Republican primary Tuesday, defeating three-term lawmaker James Oscarson and taking his place as the favored candidate against Democrat Lesia Romanov heading into the midterm election.
Hof celebrated Tuesday night with Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss, the AP reported.
"It's all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me," Hof told the Associated Press in a phone call. "He found the way and I jumped on it."
Hof, who wrote a book titled "The Art of the Pimp," has dubbed himself "The Trump of Pahrump," and held a rally with longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone. Hof was in the limelight in 2015, when former NBA player Lamar Odom was found unconscious at Hof's Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada, after a four-day, $75,000 stay.
