Michelle Fischbach has been sworn-in as a member of the 117th Congress representing Minnesota’s Seventh Congressional District.

She says she “looks forward to serving western Minnesota in the 117th Congress.”  In addition, she says that she vows “to fight for our great state and nation every day that I have the honor of being a Member of Congress.”

Fischbach defeated long-time Democrat Congressman Collin Peterson back on Nov. 3.  Peterson was first elected to Congress back in 1990.
