As a deeply religious man, Mr Pence was said to be "beside himself" over Mr Trump's comments on the tape.
The RNC began looking into replacing Trump, and top Republicans were talking about placing Pence at the top of the ticket with Condoleeza Rice as his running mate, The Atlantic reported.
The Atlantic published a profile piece of Pence Tuesday, detailing how he and Priebus were considering "going rogue" back in October 2016 after The Washington Post leaked the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape in which Trump brags about using his star power to grab women "by the p***y".

By the time a congressional seat opened up ahead of the 2000 election, Pence was a minor IN celebrity and state Republicans were urging him to run.
And he said they belonged to the fraternity. "The whole house was locked down", he added. In fact, Pence's good rapport with Hanover College's administration landed him a job in the school's admissions office in 1981.
