“I’ve been named the #10 most bipartisan member of the U.S. House and the #1 most bipartisan from Nevada. I ran for Congress to cut through partisan dysfunction and gridlock. I'm proud to lead in bringing Democrats and Republicans together to deliver on that promise.” (Website)


After her re-election in November 2022, Lee stated: “When I go back to Washington, I will continue to work to lower costs for families and ensure that the economy continues to grow while defending our fundamental freedoms, especially a woman’s right to choose.” (Twitter, 11/10/22)



Lee graduated with honors from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and earned a Masters’ degree in Public Management. Before running for office, Lee worked for and managed non-profits in the Las Vegas area. In 2010, she became president of the board of Communities In Schools of Nevada whose goal was reducing high school dropout rates.


In 2018, Lee defeated Republican Danny Tarkanian by eight points to replace outgoing Democratic incumbent Jacky Rosen who successfully ran for U.S. Senate. In 2020 Lee defeated Republican challenger Daniel Rodimer, a former professional wrestler and football player named as one of the GOP’s “Young Guns Contenders” in 2020. In ‘22, Rep. Lee defeated April Becker by 4% in this Biden +7 district.



Representative Lee supports:

  • addressing climate change, drought, and conservation/public lands issues

  • clean energy

  • infrastructure investment

  • transparency in drug prices

  • middle class tax relief

  • access and opportunity for all.

  • Improvements to our education system

  • honoring our promises to veterans



Nevada remains a purple state that is seen as in play for both parties. Given the likelihood that Nevada will be a key Presidential battleground state in 2024 and the fact that Democratic Senator Jacky Rosen is also on the ballot, Nevada will be at the epicenter of national politics.


Nevada 03 has long been considered one of the most competitive districts, even after the most recent redistricting gave Democrats a greater voter registration edge there. While there is no current declared Republican candidate, Rep. Lee’s 2024 race will likely draw significant spending from outside groups since Republicans view the district as a prime flip opportunity.




  • House Appropriations Committee; subcommittees focusing on Energy & Water; and Military Construction & Veterans Affairs

  • House Natural Resources Committee



  • Vice-Chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus

  • Whip of the New Democrat Coalition

  • Co-Chair of the Bipartisan Women’s Caucus

  • sits on the House Democratic Steering and Policy

As of the end of 2022, Rep. Lee had $33,015 cash on hand to face Elizabeth Helgelien, a former Nevada State Senator. This will likely be an expensive race again. Although she outraised her opponent by $3 million in 2022, she raised $6,446,268 and was outspent by $6 million, most of which came from Republican dark money groups. Congresswoman Susie Lee has been added to the 2023 DCCC Frontline program--a list of vulnerable incumbent Democrats whose victories are essential to restoring our Democratic House Majority in 2024.
