The third theme is the institutionalization of the division of the national parties into separate national committee, House and Senate organizations. Since the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, the Democratic and Republican parties have received public financial support for their congressional policy committees. This support is not channelled through the party national committees, however, but goes directly to the party organizations in the two chambers of Congress.

The state delegation, for example, is the basic unit of representation for both the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC - see p. 43), and while not every state is directly represented on the caucus committees on committees (which assign members of their parties to the standing committees of the corresponding chamber), state delegations (for example, Democratic Representatives from Michigan) are still the basic units grouped to form the constituencies of members of the committees on committees.

Continuing the emphasis on states as the basic units of the national party, these additional delegates are regarded as part of their states' delegations, even if they are chosen elsewhere (for example, by the Congressional caucuses). The formal structure of the Republican convention has changed far less than the Democratic, in part because the Republicans have maintained the rule that only the National Convention can change the rules for subsequent conventions, but also because their string of presidential victories until 1992 gave them less incentive to reform their rules.
