CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Sun-Times Editorial Board says it is back in the business of making political endorsements.

The newspaper announced it would stop issuing endorsements in January 2012, arguing that their value was diminished because voters have access to many information sources. The newspaper says its readers have since asserted they found “great value” in endorsements and want them resumed.

The Sun-Times announced in an editorial posted Friday on its website (https://bit.ly/1uioqk8 ) that it will make an endorsement Sunday in the Illinois governor’s race. It also will make endorsements in the February Chicago municipal elections and “other key local races.”

The newspaper offered no opinion on candidates in the 2012 congressional or presidential races, nor in this year’s March primaries.

The Sun-Times says it will “make endorsements without fear or favor.”
