The following is a list of former Tea Party supporters who have become RINOs or Never Trumpers. These people were involved with the anti-establishment conservative Tea Party movement while it was active, but have since been revealed to be RINOs or establishment conservatives, and many strongly opposed the nomination of current President Donald John Trump.

Additionally, some have argued that Ted Cruz is an establishment conservative[25] and that Rand Paul is a RINO.[26] Both were strongly involved Tea Party activists, and both were intensely popular among the grassroots.[27] Former Tea Party darling[28] Marco Rubio has also arguably pandered to the establishment.[29] Former Republican representative Martha Roby opposed Trump in 2016, though she has since become less vocal of her criticisms and received the president's endorsement in her 2018 re-election bid.[30] Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler is another figure who came into Congress as a fiscal conservative[31] and rising star though became an anti-Trumper.[32]
