November 28, 2018
LAS VEGAS — Thirty-eight people have applied for three Southern Nevada vacancies in the state Legislature created in the wake of this month's election.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that nine people applied for the Senate seat held by Democrat Tick Segerblom, who was elected to the Clark County Commission.
Ten people applied for the Las Vegas-area Senate seat held by Democrat Aaron Ford, who was elected attorney general, and 19 people have applied for an Assembly seat won by Republican brothel owner Dennis Hof.
Hof died in October but won the election.
Clark County commissioners will pick two Democrats to replace Ford and Segerblom and they'll join with Nye and Lincoln commissioners to pick a Republican replacement for Hof.
The applicants include attorneys, professors and several people in government, including Assemblyman Chris Brooks, who applied for Segerblom's seat.
