REPLAY - US Supreme Court hearing: Republican Senator Graham makes opening statement

The US Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday opened its four-day confirmation hearing for President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett in what the panel's chairman predicted would be a "long contentious week," as Republicans seek to approve her ahead of the Nov. 3 presidential election. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who chairs the committee, began by paying tribute to Ginsburg and said Barrett, a conservative appellate court judge, would be a "worthy successor."
