Seeking her fifth term, state Sen. Elizabeth Tori, an Elizabethtown Republican, has nearly a 10-point lead in the latest cn|2 Poll over Democratic challenger Dennis Parrett, who is making his first run for office.

Tori received 49.3% of support compared to 39.6% for Parrett. Nearly 10% say they’re still undecided in the race.

The poll of 450 likely Kentucky voters in the 10th state Senate District was conducted Oct. 11-12 by live interviewers from Braun Research Inc. of Princeton New Jersey. It has a margin of error of 4.6 points. Click here to view the 10th state Senate district details and crosstabs.

Democrats have targeted Tori in past races. And Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Daniel Logsdon confirmed to Pure Politics this week that the party has invested $60,000 in helping Parrett.

But Republicans have been confident about Tori’s re-election in the district that has trended increasingly conservative.

Here’s a Pure Politics look at the race so far:
