U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen of Minnesota's Third Congressional District has more than $1.58 million banked for his re-election campaign, including $450,000 raised during the months of April, May and June.

The two-term incumbent's fundraising totals have improved since the same point in 2010 when he had $1.34 million stocked away for his campaign.

DFL challenger Brian Barnes raised slightly more than $107,000 during the second quarter and has $56,550 in the bank.

Paulsen's Republican primary opponents John Howard III, had not yet to report their fundraising numbers as of this morning.
