Grande ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing North Dakota At-large district.[2] She was defeated in the Republican primary.

According to the Washington Post, North Dakota is a battleground district in 2012, with incumbent Rick Berg running for Senate and Republicans duking it out in the primary. Democrat Pam Gulleson is vastly out-raising the Republican candidates, and has a "fighting chance" in a conservative state.[3]
