Matt Patterson, Executive Director of the Center for Worker Freedom, was quoted in the Washington Examiner on April 6, 2017, on Secretary of Labor Nominee Alexander Acosta:

“The vote is expected later this month and "no trouble" is expected, according to a Republican source who requested anonymity.

’It's been eerily quiet about Acosta, on both the Left and Right,’ said Matt Patterson, executive director of the Center for Worker Freedom, an arm of the conservative Americans for Tax Reform. Others involved in lobbying for Acosta's confirmation report the same thing. Labor and liberal groups with an interest in the department didn't respond to requests for comment.

The Senate fight over placing Judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court has pushed everything else to the side for now, said a lobbyist backing Acosta who requested anonymity. That has had the effect of diverting attention from other administration nominees. "We haven't heard anything about Acosta's nomination facing a fight on the Senate floor," the source said.”
