Michelle Louise Helene Fischbach (born November 3, 1965, age 55) is an attorney and pro-life conservative Republican politician from Minnesota who briefly served as the lieutenant governor of the state[1] following the appointment of the then-incumbent officeholder of the position, Tina Smith, to serve in the United States Senate following the resignation of the disgraced sexual predator Al Franken. Prior to becoming the Lieutenant Governor of Minnesota, Fischbach was a state senator from Minnesota's 13th district and the President of the Minnesota Senate, thus being first in line of succession to becoming the lieutenant governor under state law.
