The advocacy arm of the IFF, an ultra-conservative policy organization, endorsed Bourn and cited Bernt’s vote on HB 71 as a reason to oppose the incumbent. Bourn and the IFF also indicated that Bernt voted to support 2023 legislation that would have provided a restricted driver's license to undocumented immigrants — but Bernt never voted on this bill and doesn’t sit on the committee that it went through.

Bourn said she had been a Democrat in the '90s because she believed the ideals have changed. She pointed to support for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs and illegal immigration.
