Sen. Ted Cruz suggested another Supreme Court vacancy could take place "very soon," The Washington Times reported on Friday.

Speaking in Atlanta to the National Rifle Association's (NRA) lobbying group, the Leadership Forum, the Texas Republican predicted the opening could be "either this summer or next summer."

"I believe very soon we're going to see another vacancy," Cruz said, adding, "I hope and pray that President (Donald) Trump continues to honor his promise to nominate principled constitutionalist(s) who will ferociously defend the Bill of Rights."

He told the group of gun rights proponents that it would be important for them "to inform, to educate, to mobilize the American people that the only way we defend our liberties is if we stand up and fight to protect the Bill of Rights and the Constitution."

Cruz echoed statements he made earlier this year regarding a possible vacancy at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the article explained.

Cruz, who was a top Republican contender against Trump in the 2016 presidential election, praised Neil Gorsuch, the president's pick for the vacancy left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

"God bless the NRA," he said. "It's 2017. And, Hillary Clinton is not president of the United States. And, Neil Gorsuch is a Supreme Court Justice."
