Republicans in Congress Against Trump

To date, 53 Republican members of Congress have publicly declared their opposition to Donald Trump, their party's presidential nominee.

They have either said explicitly that they will not vote for him, withdrawn previous endorsements or called on him to abandon his candidacy. (Some in that last group haven’t said how they’ll vote if Trump doesn’t drop out.)

A quarter of the lawmakers on the list had spurned Trump before the release on Oct. 7 of a 2005 video in which he bragged about groping women. The rest did so within days after the recording came out.

Three senators and three House members have since reversed themselves and declared they will vote for Trump after all.

The members in italics on these alphabetical lists are in competitive races this fall.
