WASHINGTON - Rep. Dennis Moore, D-Kan., is in Cuba to promote trade with the United States.

Moore and other supporters of increased trade with the island nation want American producers to be allowed to sell more food to Cuba. They argue that the embargo hurts U.S. farmers more than anyone else.

“It makes sense to push for more commerce with potential trading partners in our own hemisphere,” Moore said in a statement.

Congress in 2000 eased the 40-year-old embargo on Cuba by allowing sales of American food, with many restrictions. Cuba has spent at least $264 million on American products since then, said Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Mo., another lawmaker on the trip.

The group is a bipartisan, eight-member delegation to Cuba that left Thursday on a five-day trip.
