I have a saddlebag that is not closing all the way on one latch and found out that the latch on the door is broken where the latch connects. The base that holds the screw for the latch is broken.Whats the best way to fix this? I was thinking of possibly using gorilla glue.Any other ideas? Any help would be appreciated!!

I did similar repair to latch on trunk lid... Used JB-Weld to encapuslate the broken latch and mating surface, after the surfaces had been thoughougly roughed up with a dremel tool. It looks fugly, but works.

Note that the latch has to be Aligned prior to bonding it, otherwise the trunk may not latch correctly... You might try tack-bonding it first, to verify it works, prior to making it permanent.
