Ahead of the 2009 election, Tørresdal declined a renomination as the Christian Democrats' second candidate from Rogaland. However, she accepted the nomination as the first candidate from Nord-Trøndelag, where she had moved to be with her husband. The election gave the Christian Democrats only 4% of the vote in Nord-Trøndelag, and she was far away from winning a seat.
