RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan has set a new personal record for fundraising.

The Journal Times of Racine reports Ryan raised $1.6 million in the quarter that ended June 30. It is the most the Republican congressman has ever raised in a quarter.

Ryan was first elected to Congress in 1998. He ran for vice president in 2012 and is frequently mentioned as a possible presidential contender in 2016.

This year has seen Ryan's two best fundraising quarters. He raised nearly $1.4 million in the quarter that ended March 31. Campaign finance reports show he has $3.8 million on hand.

Ryan will face the winner of the Democratic primary between Rob Zerban and Amar Kaleka in the Nov. 4 general election. All the candidates' fundraising reports are due Tuesday.
