Two debates this week are giving voters another look at Texas State Rep. Eric Johnson (D-Dallas) and current City Councilman Scott Griggs. The pair emerged as the top two candidates from a large pool hoping to replace term-limited Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings.

The first debate was Monday. A second debate, sponsored by NBC 5, The Dallas Morning News and the Dallas Regional Chamber, was held Tuesday at Dallas' El Centro College and will be moderated by NBC 5 Political Reporter Julie Fine and the Dallas Morning News' Gromer Jeffers. 

If you missed the live event, the debate can be seen above; it will also be replayed Sunday morning from 8 a.m. until 9 a.m. on NBC 5.
