Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, said it was gratifying to see the party's midterm election victories because it showed the GOP was starting to get its "act together" in strategies to connect with voters.
Priebus told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that the Republican Party had placed an emphasis on a better technological strategy, as well as reaching out to more "diverse" voters.

"A couple years ago, we said we needed a more diverse, younger party. A party that's year-round, not a party that shows up once every four years before an election. And a party that got its act together when it came to our digital and data program," Priebus said Wednesday.
Republicans realized they had to "double down on our engagement in black and Hispanic communities across the country," Priebus said, adding the party also realized they needed to "double and triple down" on field operations.
As Republicans looked to the 2016 elections, Priebus suggested lawmakers set a legislative agenda with realistic goals, and then work with President Barack Obama on passing legislation.
"For 2016, I think it's really important our leaders in the Legislature set forward now real achievable goals that are simple, that we can define for the American people.
"One, two, three, four: Here are the things we're going to do. Achievable things. Work with the president. Get those things done. Repeat and repeat and repeat," he said.
