This article applies an innovative empirical inquiry to measure the extent of party patronage, as-sessing where, how deeply, and to what extent parties reach into the Argentine federal state struc-tures. While the results by and large confirm the widespread notion of the broad scope of political appointments in Argentina, they refute the conventional hypothesis of a state thoroughly colonized by parties. They also suggest that parties’ distribution of public jobs in the Argentine federal state is oriented less to mass-style patronage than to gaining effective and broad control overstate institutions
