Minnesota Senate President Michelle Fischbach says she expects to keep her spot in the Senate when she becomes lieutenant governor.     

Gov. Mark Dayton appointed current Lt. Gov. Tina Smith on Wednesday to take Sen. Al Franken's place in the U.S. Senate. The state constitution calls for Fischbach - a Republican - to become lieutenant governor.
