FORT WORTH (CBS 11 NEWS) Texas' new Senator Ted Cruz became the center of attention from Republicans and the Tea Party long before today's swearing-in.

He campaigned as a grassroots conservative and won big.

Political analyst John Weekley says, "He goes there almost as a star quality because he's from Texas, he's Latino."

Cruz, the first Latino Senator from Texas, succeeds Kay Bailey Hutchison, who became the first female Senator from the Lone Star State.

During her 19 years in office, she received wide praise.
