The first way is making nominations. Political parties make nominations while interest groups support nominations. Second is the primary focus. Political parties have many different focuses while interest groups tend to have one focus. Third the scope of their interest is different. The interest group is very focused on one item while the political party cannot spend too much time on one topic.
