State senator Dan Wolf to resign seat, suspend gubernatorial campaign

Democratic state senator Dan Wolf, whose stake in Cape Air has drawn scrutiny for its business with the state, said Thursday morning he was resigning his seat and suspending his gubernatorial campaign while fighting an Ethics Commission decision.

“Until this matter is resolved, I am suspending my efforts to become the next Governor of Massachusetts, believing that unless this ruling is changed I cannot conduct a campaign for real economic and social justice, defining a bright future for the Commonwealth that includes affordable public education, a rebuilt infrastructure, and healthy partnerships between the public and private sectors,” Wolf told supporters in an email.
