3. But I believe they have opted at times even in major elections not to endorse anyone.

I can see them not wanting to endorse Quinn as he's a realist when it comes to taxes but given how unqualified, undefined, and generally shifty Rauner is, they could quite reasonably made this another one of those times. To endorse him based almost exclusively on his perceived ability to improve the jobs climate in Illinois when his business history shows he made much of his fortune by bankrupting companies and offshoring labor doesn't stand up to even republican reasoning.
