Tribune Endorses Wolfe Over Longtime Incumbent Schakowsky

The unexpected move comes as the Daily Herald endorses Schakowsky in the 9th Congressional District.

The Chicago Tribune has endorsed newcomer Tim Wolfe, a Republican from Arlington Heights, over longtime Rep. Jan Schakowsky, of Evanston, for the 9th Congressional District.

The move came as something of a surprise, since the newspaper has endorsed Schakowsky in the past, including in 2010. It said Washington could use more of Wolfe's fiscal restraint.

The Daily Herald's editorial board said it had mixed feelings, but ultimately decided to endorse Schakowsky over Wolfe. Her standing as chief deputy whip of the House Democrats benefits the suburbs, the paper said. 

The Chicago Sun-Times has decided not to endorse candidates, saying it will instead provide readers information and let them make their own decisions.
