Dennis Hof, a Trump-loving brothel owner running for a seat in Nevada's State Assembly, has died.

Campaign manager Chuck Muth on Tuesday announced news of Hof's passing on his Twitter account.

"I just confirmed with Nye County sheriff’s deputy that Dennis Hof passed away this morning. No other details at this point," he wrote. "I’m heading out to Love Ranch Vegas now. Official statement will come once I learn more."

County Commissioner John Koenig said that Hof died in his sleep at his Love Ranch South brothel, according to the Las Vegas Sun. The cause of death is under investigation.

The 72-year-old Hof said that he was inspired to run for public office after watching President Donald Trump's successful 2016 presidential campaign.

“This really is the Trump movement," the late pimp told Reuters earlier this year. "People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody that is honest in office. Trump is the trailblazer, he is the Christopher Columbus of honest politics."
