TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Paul Ryan says he's already looking forward to debating Vice President Joe Biden and thinks his experience as a congressman will give him an edge.

The Wisconsin Republican, in an interview with CNN, said while he thinks Biden is a good debater, his 14 years in the House will be an advantage.

That's all we do in the House, said Ryan.

Biden served as a Democratic senator from Delaware for 36 years before becoming vice president.

Mitt Romney's running mate said he's already started preparing for the debate against Biden set for Oct. 11 in Danville, Ky.
