Leading the opposition against Acosta is HELP committee ranking member Patty Murray, who has received more in union donations than anyone else on the committee:

When there is more than $2 million on the line, it is not surprising that Murray will go to such great lengths to oppose Acosta’s pro-worker agenda. Patty Murray has been in the pocket of big unions for years, and this latest round of attacks on Acosta just further proves who is calling the shots in the Democrat party.
