Ortman planned to run in the 2014 election for the U.S. Senate, representing Minnesota. Ortman sought the Republican nomination in the primary, but withdrew from the race after Mike McFadden received a majority of votes from delegates at Minnesota's GOP convention in May 2014.[3]

Early in the race, Ortman won a straw poll, stating that it was an "encouragement that we’re starting to unify the party." She also explained what makes her stand out: "I bring some things to the race that others don’t … I’m also a mom. It’s all about their future, really."[4]
