Why Is Lee Running for Congress?
"Like many Americans, I'm fed up with the partisanship in Washington and a congress that is dominated by career politicians. Our nation's financial woes are largely caused by irresponsible behavior by officials we've sent to Washington. We need legislators who will be accountable to their districts, not to special interest groups or party interests.
