Which Republicans are Anti-Trump? Here's a list.
At the moment, many Establishment Republicans -- largely Business Conservatives backed by megacorporations -- are defecting en masse over "lewd comments" by Donald Trump. Most of these candidates also opposed Trump during the primary campaign; this is generally not included due to the amount of space it would consume. All Representatives are up for re-election unless they have decided to retire. I got the original list from 4chan.

Note for anyone who isn't a Trump supporter who may be reading this: Mike Pence is a Republican who supports Donald J. Trump for President. #DumpTrump and related movements advocate changing the ballots in some states to make Mike Pence the Republican candidate for President (stripping ballot access from Donald Trump), a resignation of Donald Trump where Mike Pence would become President, or another route such as defunding the Trump campaign and rerouting funds to other campaigns, like Senate and House of Representatives campaigns. Some even support other candidates, but this is generally not the case, since they are all Republicans.

This list also includes some information to help voters come to a decision on if they should rescind support from these candidates in their area.

Since I really got caught up procrastinating, this got gutted. Here's an extremely late "JUST IN TIME" post!
