GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is set to address the annual National Right to Life Convention.

The Texas Republican is sure to get a warm welcome from the conservative crowd Friday in suburban Dallas.

Cruz was a little-known former Texas solicitor general before riding a tea party wave of support to an upset win in last year's Republican Senate primary against Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, a GOP establishment favorite.

Cruz has made national headlines since arriving in Washington, with some calling him the Senate's new troublemaker.

But he's seen his profile slip lately. Cruz was a vocal critic of the sweeping immigration legislation the Senate overwhelmingly approved Thursday.

He said in a statement: "Sadly, this bill won't fix the problem with our immigration system and will only encourage more illegal immigration."
