The candidates took part in a debate on May 14, sponsored by NBC 5, The Dallas Morning News and the Dallas Regional Chamber.

A debate between Dallas mayoral candidates Texas State Rep. Eric Johnson (D-Dallas) and current City Councilman Scott Griggs was held Tuesday in Dallas and moderated by NBC 5 Political Reporter Julie Fine and the Dallas Morning News' Gromer Jeffers.

In the May election, Johnson and Griggs were the top two finishers in a field of nine candidates. The pair were separated by only two percentage points, or roughly 1,400 votes.

Since that time, both candidates have received a number of endorsements.

Early voting for the runoff began Monday; Election Day is June 8.
