The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:
The notices posted at the polling places where Dennis Hof’s name will appear on the ballot — despite his death on Tuesday — will unlikely deter Republican voters from casting ballots in his favor on Nov. 6.
“I would venture to guess that there’s a pretty good chance that he’ll be elected,” said John Koenig, Nye County Commission Chairman. “I think the Republicans in this town will still vote for him because they want a Republican in the chair.”
If Hof does defeat Democrat Lesia Romanov, a vacancy would be created in Assembly District 36. That will prompt a process where three commissions of each county included in the district must come together to find a Republican replacement a few months before the start of the 2019 legislative session.
