WASHINGTON (AP) — Confirmation hearings begin Monday for President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.

If confirmed, the 48-year-old appeals court judge would fill the seat of liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last month.

Ginsburg’s replacement by Barrett, a conservative, would shift the balance on the court significantly right, from 5-4 in favor of conservatives to 6-3.
