BOSTON (AP) — State Sen. Dan Wolf has won a temporary reprieve from a state Ethics Commission ruling that could force him to quit the Legislature and end his campaign for governor.
The commission has extended a deadline it gave Wolf, a Harwich Democrat, to choose between his political career or continued ownership interest in Cape Air.READ MORE: Omicron COVID Variant Detected In Massachusetts Woman

As a result, Wolf will not resign from the Senate on Thursday as he had previously said he would be forced to do unless the commission reconsidered. His gubernatorial campaign will remain suspended.
The commission said Wolf is in violation of conflict-of-interest rules because Cape Air has contracts with Logan International Airport, which is operated by the Massachusetts Port Authority.MORE NEWS: CNN Fires Chris Cuomo For Helping His Brother Craft Defense Against Sexual Harassment Scandal
