The late Dennis Hof, a Donald Trump-style Republican candidate, defeated Democrat Lesia Romanov in the contest. The 36th Assembly District is situated in the south portion of Nevada, and includes portions of Nye, Lincoln, and Clark counties.
Mr Hof's campaign manager Chuck Muth said election day was "bittersweet".
"There are a lot of Republicans who were uncomfortable voting for Dennis because of the nature of his business and they now know that he is not the one who will be serving", his campaign manager Chuck Muth said in an interview after Hof's death.
Hof owned brothels in Nevada - the only U.S. state where they are legally allowed to operate - and starred in am HBO reality show called Cathouse.
Earlier on Tuesday, it was announced that the Democrats captured the House of Representatives in America and that they are set to exert a major institutional check on President Trump, while breaking the Republican monopoly on power and ushering in a younger, more female and more racially diverse political generation.
The pro-Trump candidate still found favour with the voters and patrons of Hof's Nevada brothel, even from the great beyond just to keep his memory alive. He starred in the HBO adult reality series "Cathouse" and wrote a book titled "The Art of the Pimp", akin to Trump's book "The Art of the Deal".
