InfoMargaret Farrow (born November 28, 1934) is a former state senator and former Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin. She was born and raised in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and attended Rosary College in River Forest, Illinois for one year before receiving her B.A. from Marquette University.

The first female lieutenant governor of Wisconsin, Farrow was appointed to the position after then-Lieutenant Governor Scott McCallum was elevated to governor upon the departure of Gov. Tommy Thompson to join the administration of George W. Bush in January 2001.

McCallum and Farrow ran for a full 4-year term in 2002, but their Republican ticket lost the race to Democrat Jim Doyle.

Prior to being appointed lieutenant governor, Farrow was president of the Elm Grove, Wisconsin Village Board. After her term with the Village Board, Farrow was elected to the Wisconsin State Senate from a district comprising most of Waukesha County, Wisconsin.

Farrow was publicly touted by 1998 GOP Senate nominee Mark Neumann as the best candidate to take-on Democrat Russ Feingold in 2004. Without putting her name forward for consideration, she won a straw poll at the 2003 Republican State Convention. However, she opted to not run, and instead was active in the Wisconsin efforts of the re-election campaign of President George W. Bush.

Farrow and her husband are now residents of Pewaukee, Wisconsin. She is currently a lobbyist and consultant with Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek Government Affairs LLC.
