Pence Was Almost President Instead of Trump?

The Atlantic, a liberal outlet, reports that after the Billy Bush tape surfaced, Republican Party officials expected that they would be able to get Trump to drop out of the presidential race before the second debate. The plan would then have been for Pence to step into the role of Republican candidate, according to members of the campaign. 

Former Pence staffers say Pence was ready to step-in during the primary to replace Trump and his wife, Karen Pence, finds President Trump “reprehensible—just totally vile."  

"Do I believe that there were conversations about Mike Pence taking over after the Billy Bush tape? Absolutely! Do I think that Mike Pence's wife thinks Donald Trump's comments were a little disrespectful? Absolutely!"-Nigel
