WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - As two Democrats consider running against Paul Ryan, the GOP congressman from Janesville has been racking up campaign money.

The House Budget chairman reports having $2.6 million on hand through the end of September. He raised $824,000 over the last three months alone.

Observers say it's a large amount for any congressional candidate, especially in an off-election year.

Ryan had his lowest vote totals in years in 2012, while he was often away from his district running for vice president under Mitt Romney.

Amar Kaleka, son of the murdered Sikh Temple president, says he'll run as a Democrat against Ryan.

Rob Zerban, who got 43 percent of the vote against Ryan last fall, plans to hold what he calls an "announcement rally" on October 26th.
