Dennis Hof, the Nevada brothel owner and Republican candidate for state Assembly, died Tuesday after a birthday party, his campaign manager said.

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. He reportedly went to bed Monday night after celebrating his birthday and never woke up.

Dennis Hof was the picture of health before his untimely death, and there are no obvious signs he was under the influence when he died.
