Minnesota's new Republican lieutenant governor has missed at least two of her office's duties since assuming the role.

Longtime GOP Sen. Michelle Fischbach automatically became lieutenant governor in January when Gov. Mark Dayton appointed her predecessor to the U.S. Senate. Fischbach is keeping her state Senate seat and maintains she can perform both jobs.
