The U.S. Senator who's become one of the most visible opponents of Obamacare stops in his home state today.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will stop in North Texas to talk to business leaders and commerce groups.

Cruz' first stop is a meeting with small business owners at the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce before he heads to an evening meeting with political supporters.

But Cruz has been the target of some criticism from business leaders, specifically from the President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

During a breakfast with reporters on Monday, Tom Donahue said Cruz needs to work with other congressmen.

"I sort of think about him as a tennis player. You know, if you are going to rush the net all the time, you better have a lot of motion to the left and right, and he hasn't proved that to me yet," Donahue said during the event.

Cruz contends his efforts to stop Obamacare and his other political stances have been works in progress for the best interests of the Texans who elected him.

NBC 5's Jeff Smith contributed to this report.
