U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is in Austin and plans to address the Chamber of Commerce.

Friday's appearance is scheduled to feature remarks by Cruz and then a question-and-answer session with the audience.

Cruz was a little-known former Texas solicitor general before he rode a tea party tidal wave of support to an upset win in last summer's Republican senatorial primary against GOP establishment favorite and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst.

After cruising to victory in the general election, Cruz has made national headlines since arriving in Washington.

He has been dubbed the chamber's new troublemaker, and Democrats have compared his style to McCarthyism.

Even some members of the GOP have bristled at Cruz's opposition to legislation and nearly everything else of significance that has come before him.
