TAMPA,Fla. - (AP) - Accepting his party's nomination to be president, Republican Mitt Romney says he wants to restore the nation's promise by creating jobs for millions of unemployed Americans.

He says Americans were hoping for great change when President Barack Obama came into office, but those hopes have given way to disappointment and division.

Romney says he has a goal of creating 12 million jobs and would do so by taking full advantage of the country's energy resources and by giving citizens skills they need for the jobs of today and of the future.

He is also promising to cut the deficit and rein in the cost of health care.
