Elizabeth Tori (born March 2, 1936) is an American politician from the Republican Party. Tori represented the 10th state Senate district of Kentucky from 1995 until 2011. Tori attended the University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University. Tori began her political activism with the creation of the North Hardin Republican Women's Club. Tori was also active in the congressional campaigns of her late husband, Martin, who ran for Kentucky's 2nd district U.S. House seat in 1988 and 1990. Tori made her first run for political office in 1992 with a failed bid for the Radcliff, Kentucky City Council. Two years later, Tori filed for the 10th district state Senate seat held by Democratic incumbent Tom Smith. Using the slogan "the man for the job is a woman", Tori ran a hard campaign that focused on veterans' issues, a highly appealing topic to the district that includes Fort Knox. Tori defeated Smith on election night, becoming the first woman and first Republican to represent the district. Tori was elected Senate Minority Whip in 1997.
