The sudden decision, which appeared to catch both sides off guard, is all but certain to become campaign fodder in the midterm election, particularly in the conservative states that are the battleground for control of the Senate.

"It is crystal clear that the Obama administration is simply not serious about American energy and American jobs," said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R Ky., whose campaign fired off an attack linking his likely Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, to the decision. "Apparently radical activists carry more weight than Americans desperate to get back on the job."
