A political party is a group of people who have organized to promote and support candidates for public office and the group's principles, also called platforms. This section contains links to organizations self-identified as political parties in the United States of America, whether or not they have achieved such legal status in their areas of operation. Due to the federal nature of the United States, most political parties, including both the Republican and Democratic Parties, base their operations at the state level. Sometimes candidates may seek the endorsement of several parties; New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani was the candidate of both the Republican Party and Liberal Party in New York. Some parties may form coalitions; thus the official Democratic Party organ in Minnesota is actually the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL) It is in the best interest of a local party committee to suggest their site via the most appropriate local Regional category. If however the party has branches or affiliates across several states, the submitter may request a new category be created in this section. State chapters of parties and special interest or demographically based party committees organized on a state level should not be suggested at this level. They should be suggested to the Regional political party category for the corresponding state. eg Regional/North_America/United_States/Texas/Society_and_Culture/Politics/Parties
