MIAMI -- September 22, 2012

Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is courting Cuban-American voters with promises to be tougher on the Castro regime than President Barack Obama.

Ryan campaigned Saturday morning at the famed Versailles restaurant in Miami's Little Havana. He's later scheduled to hold a town hall in Orlando at the University of Central Florida.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Miami's Cuban-American congressional representatives and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's son Craig touted Ryan's credentials in English and Spanish for the breakfast crowd.

Ryan said Romney and he would help get Latinos back to work. He also said America offered a better life to immigrants seeking freedom and prosperity. Cubans benefit from the so-called wet foot/dry foot policy that allows most Cubans who reach U.S. shores to stay.
