DOVER, Del. - A month has passed since the election and the Delaware Republican party is planning their next move.

"This is a long building process," said John Sigler, Delaware Republican party chairman. "You don't build Rome in a day.  You don't make Delaware First again in a day."    

It's a different tone from Election Night.    

The Delaware Republican party, swept in the "Big Five races",  moves on.  They're focusing on 2014, 2016, and beyond.

"Just as you prepare yourself with education, political candidates who are going to be successful at high levels need to begin to think now, 'how do I get there?'"

Sigler told WMDT that their "Make Delaware First Agenda" is hitting it's strides.

"The strength of Delaware has always been the family farm, the family business."    

He said it's the key in helping the First State move forward.

"We're not first now. We have slipped in areas in 20 years.  We've slipped and it's time to stop the slide for the state."

Even as Democrats and Republicans remain divided on many issues including the fiscal cliff, Sigler said "it's not about blue and red, it's about blue and gold.  It's about Delaware."

The Delaware Republican Party did pick up a new seat in the House and Senate on Election Night; however, the Democratic Party still holds the majority in the State General Assembly.
