Lee won handily, carrying nearly 75 percent of the vote with 21 percent of the precincts reporting.

The race for the 26th Congressional District seat has seen little if any publicity, as Lee's challenger has not put up much of a campaign against the incumbent.

Lee has shied away from partisanship and has followed the Republican line on important policy issues, while joining Democrats to push for legislation and oversight of regional airlines in the wake of the crash of Flight 3407, reports the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.
