Ralston: Heller, Laxalt And ... Dennis Hof?

Sue Ogrocki

Dennis Hof

Another week closer to the election and another week of only-in-Las Vegas political moves.

Brothel owner Dennis Hof, running for the Assembly District 36 seat as a Republican, says campaign signs will start appearing soon with his name along those of U.S. Senator Dean Heller and Attorney General Adam Laxalt.

Heller is running to keep his seat in the Senate; Laxalt is running for governor.

Neither candidate has endorsed Hof.

And is it legal or ethical for a  U.S. senator to promise a vote in return for campaign donations?

Jon Ralston, editor of the Nevada Independent, joins us to talk about that and more.
