Famed Love Ranch brothel owner Dennis Hof passed away on Tuesday according to Nevada officials.

David Boruchowitz says an employee at the brothel called 911 late the morning of October 16, 2018 when Hof was found unresponsive and not breathing.

Guests at the party included the porn star Ron Jeremy, the controversial sheriff and Trump ally Joe Arpaio and the anti-tax activist Grover Norquist.

Chuck Muth, Hof's campaign manager, said on Twitter that Hof died in his sleep.

Nevada brothel owner and Republican candidate for state legislature Dennis Hof has died. "My heart goes out to those who care about him". Though no foul play is suspected, witnesses say the fatal incident occurred after a campaign rally for State Assembly.

The sheriff says Hof was sitting on a stool and talking with people when she left the party at the Pahrump Nugget Hotel & Casino after 10 p.m. Monday. His Love Ranch brothel outside Pahrump is where the National Basketball Association player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015. "Hof is the most high-profile legal "pimp" ever".

Hof had denied any wrongdoing. Thorley said ballots with Hof's name have already been mailed to voters but signs will be posted at polling places notifying voters of his death.

Hof was running against Democratic Las Vegas educator Lesia Romanov.
