(Nevada Appeal) – Dennis Hof — legal brothel mogul, HBO-TV star, best-selling author, successful business entrepreneur and Nevadan, has announced he has joined the Libertarian Party and has organized an exploratory committee to run for U.S. Senate.
Hof announced he has washed his hands of the two major political parties, switching his affiliation to Libertarian and forming an official Exploratory Committee to consider a run for Harry Reid’s U.S. senate seat in 2016.
Hof’s move to run for the long Democrat-held position comes on the heels of state lawmakers passing the largest tax increase in Nevada history, pushing business-owner Hof to finally say he’s “Fed up and not going to take it anymore!”
“I’ve voted for Democrats and Republicans all my life, and all it’s gotten me, and all Nevadans, is more taxes and regulations and less freedoms, I’m disgusted with them both.
“As of today I have changed my party affiliation to the Libertarian Party and I am supporting the Libertarian Party of Nevada and encourage other people to do the same,” said Hof, the owner of the world famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch and six other licensed Nevada brothels. “And if I really want to change things in this state, and this country, I have to have some skin in the game — and running for U.S. Senator may just be the best way to do it.”
