(CNN)Former Vice President Mike Pence told a group of conservative lawmakers on Tuesday that he maintains a close personal friendship with former President Donald Trump, while noting that he plans to launch a political organization that will defend their administration's record over the past four years.

Rep. Jim Banks, an Indiana Republican who chairs the conservative Republican Study Committee, told CNN that a group of members met at Pence's transition office in the Washington area on Tuesday afternoon, talking about the way forward for their party while also touting the accomplishments of the past.

"He spoke very favorably about his relationship with President Trump," Banks told CNN.

Banks said that he expected Pence -- who declined an invitation to speak at this week's Conservative Political Action Conference meeting in Florida -- to be more visible in the months to come.

"He'll be launching an organization defending the successful Trump-Pence record of the last four years," Banks said.

"He talked about how in 2009, the new Democrat President, Democrat House, Democrat Senate -- how similar that moment was to this moment," Banks said.
