Theodore Schleifer, CNN

The rapid evaporation of the Wisconsin governor's campaign on Monday quickly reshaped the already rollicking Republican presidential primary. Though his White House prospects are dead, Walker's donors and early-state backers are very much in demand. And they're getting a lot of attention.
