Lee has stated, "Government is a means of using our shared goals to seek efficiencies, freedom, and justice. In Minnesota, we cannot afford to each plow our own route to work through the snow or each build our own roads. We work together because our nation is stronger when we do. Together, we must solve the most critical problems which are likely to harm our state's future."

Lee ran in the 2012 election for Minnesota House of Representatives District 58A. He was unopposed in the Democratic primary on August 14 and was defeated by incumbent Mary Liz Holberg (R) in the general election on November 6, 2012.
