Neither Walker, a potential Republican White House hopeful for 2016, nor anyone else was charged in an investigation launched nearly two years ago by prosecutors under a Wisconsin law that requires the probes to be conducted in secret. Prosecutors alleged that Walker’s campaign created a complex network of organizations that allowed them to circumvent Wisconsin campaign finance laws. “This could qualify as a black cloud or not, depending on how it develops,” said Larry Sabato, who leads the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia.
