Is the role of state political parties waning?

Our Founding Fathers did not envision political parties. Yet they are a central part of American politics; from the chair of a national party to local precinct captain. In the middle are the state parties, known primarily as State Central Committee. Each major party has its own SCC. But in the age of PACS and other independent groups some may wonder if a state political party’s influence and importance is waning. Political analyst and commentator Nicholas Kachiroubas offers his take on the future of state political parties. (Photo: Flickr/twirlop)
