Daniel Lee (born August 22, 1966) is a Rainian political and a Member of Parliament representing Oregon since 2007 and the leader of the Progressive Conservative Association since 2017 and a former member of the National Union Party.
Lee is a member of the House of Senators, the upper house of the Parliament of Rainier and represents the province of Oregon. He was initially a member of the National Union Party and was part of the red tory faction of the party adhering to one-nation and liberal conservative policies. Lee represented the red tory wing of the party and was privately critical of Andrew Clarkson during his tenure as Prime Minister of Rainier. During the 2017 House of Senators election, Lee managed to win re-election, but the NUP had suffered major electoral defeats and he announced his candidacy for the Leader of the NUP on September 3, 2017 in the 2017 leadership election. Lee became the one of the major candidates and was the primary rival of Richard Baron and ultimately lost to him. In response to Baron's national conservative and far-right positions, Lee and the other members of the red tory faction broke off and formed the Progressive Conservative Association in response to Baron's election, gutting the NUP's seats in parliament and allowing the Reform Party to take over as the dominate party in the Opposition.
