She had unsuccessfully contested Warrington South at the 2005 general election, finishing second to the sitting Labour MP, Helen Southworth.

She was awarded the title Small Businesswoman of the Year in 2003 and gained a place on the Conservative A-List in 2006.

Following her selection as the Conservative Party candidate for the constituency, she denied that she had been chosen as a result of an orchestrated campaign by religious groups sympathetic to her evangelical Christian beliefs.

In February 2015, Bruce introduced an amendment to the Serious Crime Bill 2014 to make abortion on the grounds of the sex of the baby illegal. The amendment was rejected by 292 votes to 201.

Bruce supported Brexit in the 2016 referendum.
