Naturally, the Republican National Lawyers Association is far from thrilled about most Biden judicial nominees and is outspoken in its concerns about several. Nevertheless, Abudu is one of only two nominees the RNLA has outright opposed, signaling that there is a difference between mere philosophical distastefulness and unacceptability.
In its letter to Judiciary Committee leaders of both parties, the RNLA wrote that “Ms. Abudu has shown that she is not capable of impartiality and that her radical views are outside even the progressive mainstream on these [voter integrity] issues," and "when given the opportunity to comment on these matters, Abudu declined to be forthcoming with the members of the Committee."
