Breitbart: President of the state senate Michelle Fischbach – a pro-life advocate – is slated to become the next lieutenant governor of Minnesota.
Fischbach – a Republican state senator – is assuming the new post to fulfill the state’s constitution that stipulates the senate president automatically becomes lieutenant governor should the person occupying the post resign.
Former Minnesota Lt. Governor Tina Smith – an abortion rights advocate and a former Planned Parenthood vice president – resigned from the post and was sworn in as a U.S. senator to replace former Sen. Al Franken, who left the U.S. Senate following allegations of sexual misconduct.
As LifeNews reports, Fischbach and Gov. Mark Dayton, a Democrat, are “an unusual pairing.”
“Dayton has a long record of support for abortion,” the pro-life outlet states. “Fischbach is the opposite. Michelle and her husband, Scott, have both been active in the pro-life movement since childhood.”
