Let’s Draft Dan Wolf

The Cape Cod Times brings the news that State Senator Dan Wolf (D-Harwich) will not seek re-election to the Senate in 2016 and that he will be issuing a statement about his plans in the near future.

Here’s hoping that those plans include running for the Democratic nomination for Governor in 2018. It is always nice to vote for somebody who thinks the Democratic Party in Massachusetts should stand for something more than its perpetual numerical majority.

The Ethics Commission has come to its senses on the issue that derailed his run for Governor in 2014, so that’s no longer an obstacle.

Plus, the 2018 ballot might also include the initiative petition that RaiseUpMassachusetts is fighting for to amend the State Constitution to raise additional revenue for education and infrastructure. A great cause to pair with a great candidate – what’s not to like?
