The Socialist Workers' Party (197) case saw the Supreme Court rule that a state law requiring a smaller party to obtain more than 25,000 signatures to appear on the ballot violated its First Amendment rights. This ruling raised the question of whether a political party is a public or private association. In Connecticut Republican Party (198), the Court invalidated a state closed primary law that prevented a party from inviting independent voters to participate in its primary elections. The Court's decision in Twin Cities Area New Party (199) confirmed against a First Amendment challenge a Minnesota law that prohibited a candidate from a political party from appearing on the ballot as a candidate backed by another political party. The San Francisco County Democratic Central Committee (198) case saw the First Amendment used to annul a state law that prohibited political parties from giving their political support. In the "white primary cases" of Texas in the 1920s to 1940s, the Supreme Court had to decide whether the Democratic Party's primary in that state was private and, therefore, could exclude African-Americans from participation or be subject to state and congressional regulation, so that discrimination could be prohibited.
